Leading by example: the ADIT Academic Board
At the CIOT, we celebrate the diversity of our near 6,000 strong ADIT community, made up of Affiliates, graduates and students from many different walks of life and located in 120 countries. Reflecting such diversity is the ADIT Academic Board, all of whose members are eminent international tax experts and thought leaders from around the world.
The Board is responsible for overseeing the technical content and rigour of our exams, ensuring that ADIT maintains the highest standards in international tax. Board members have taught at many leading universities, published countless articles textbooks, and advised individual taxpayers, corporations, governments and transnational institutions on an enormous range of cross-border tax subjects. Their contributions have motivated students from China, India, the USA and beyond.
