Welcome to the MCA programme!

The Master's in Customs, Taxation and International Trade Law prepares customs practitioners in the public and private sector for careers as strategic managers. 

The MCA programme is part-time and held online. It starts each October and lasts 20 months. The online seminars are held on three Saturdays of each month (09.00 - 18.00). The last six months of the programme are spent writing the Master's thesis.

The MCA is the result of a private-public partnership (PPP) between Münster University, one of Germany’s leading universities, and the AWA Foreign Trade Academy, the largest private provider of customs training in Germany. Graduates of the programme are awarded the unique degree "Master of Customs Administration" (MCA).

The programme has been nationally accredited (AQAS) and is recognised by the World Customs Organisation (WCO) as complying with its PICARD standards.
