Business Law and Taxation

Business law and taxation impact on all aspects of business and studying them equips the individual with the skills and knowledge necessary to understand the business world.

The Department of Business Law and Taxation (“BLT”) prides itself on providing students with valuable and enriching learning experiences at all levels: undergraduate, graduate and doctoral. We do this by using a variety of interactive teaching methods, ranging from storytelling, the Socratic mode, case studies and on-line technologies. We encourage students to be intellectual risk-takers, to continuously contest ideas and to question conventional wisdom.

Our teaching is informed by our academics’ research on local and international issues. This ensures students keep abreast of current issues affecting business and makes learning more engaging and interesting for students.
