You may have heard that transfer pricing is not black and white, not an exact science, but more an art! This is so true and challenging that you need to have solid background. I joined the 2020 edition of the Executive Program in Transfer Pricing and I do recommend it to everyone is interested in starting or consolidating his/her career in such an interesting area. The level of lectures is excellent and the program is a well balanced mix of theoretical explanations and practical cases. The remote connection due to the pandemic situation didn’t help the networking, but the lectures, Vikram and Natacha did everything possible and were great in making the program lively and interesting!

The Executive Program in Transfer Pricing is very comprehensive covering the most relevant transfer pricing matters. The background of the different speakers was really valuable, specially to delve into the different topics.

Due to the COVID-19 special situation we had to attend the sessions online. However, this was not a problem at all, since the organization of the program was practically perfect. I would definitely recommend the EPTP to everyone interested in transfer pricing issues.

The EPTP is a unique opportunity to hear about the latest transfer pricing topics from excellent international speakers across industries, as well as from policy making (OECD) and tax administrations. The program brings together a stringent overview of up-to-date theory with practical experiences. The documentation provided is of very high quality and well selected. While discussing the case studies, I very much enjoyed getting to know the other participants and their background, and discussing the cases from different angles. The program was organized smoothly throughout the sessions and all in all, I can highly recommend the EPTP to anyone involved with transfer pricing.

Attending the 5th edition of EPTP was a special experience this year, because of Covid-19 the entire course was conducted online through Cisco WebEx. In such difficult and unique times Vikram and Natacha, through their focus and commitment, managed to arrange the sessions in an exceptional way. Off course it goes without saying that all the lecturers conducted the sessions in a very energetic way and made sure that we do not lose focus and achieve maximum from the sessions. I really enjoyed the sessions, and it was a great learning experience. I strongly recommend this course in transfer pricing organized by the University of Lausanne. It is the perfect blend between well targeted theoretical review of transfer pricing concepts and practical solution orientated inputs from highly qualified practitioners.

I joined the Executive Program in Transfer Pricing to gain a deeper knowledge on the technical aspects of transfer pricing and to learn from practical experiences. My expectations were fully met. Qualified speakers with diverse backgrounds (authorities, in-house experts, consultants) covered various areas of transfer pricing with a very balanced mix of theory, case studies and best practices. Due to the COVID-19 situation all courses were conducted via WebEx and at the beginning I was a bit skeptical about this, however my concerns were unfounded. The speakers managed this special situation very well and the organization of the program was very good.

The Executive Program in Transfer Pricing offers an excellent overview of key Transfer Pricing topics including, but not limited to, a deep dive into the OECD guidelines (in particular the Arm's Length Principle), an overview of Financial Accounting and Valuation relevant for Transfer Pricing managers, and insights into Business Restructurings and the potential implications on Transfer Pricing. The program is well structured, provides a good mix between theoretical research and practical case studies, and is taught by some of the world's leading experts in the field including Prof. Dr. Vikram Chand.  I can highly recommend the program to anyone interested in learning more about the dynamic and increasingly important field of Transfer Pricing.

When I discovered this program, I did not hesitate a long time to register. And I do not regret this investment!
Coming from finance, I am facing increasing TP matters when working with my Group. That's why joining this program was a great opportunity to improve knowledge and to discover additional aspects that need to beware when supporting business.

This training was quite particular and challenging to perform in that pandemic period, but what a success!

Very flexible at the time of Digitalization, this program provided me with plenty of diverse backgrounds from participants and practitioners, from various sectors and countries that really enriched the program and my network.

It was a well-designed program covering all the current hot TP topics, mixing theory, practical approach and professional experiences. The provided supporting documentation was abundant and will be very helpful in day to day work life.

The Executive Program in Transfer Pricing is a good opportunity to gain in-depth insights into the transfer pricing area and follow-up on the latest developments. Qualified lecturers bring theory together with practical aspects. They share inside perspectives from the developments of organizations such as the OECD and advise on best practice based on their practical experience. The interactive sessions with participants with a large diversity of professional backgrounds lead to interesting discussions. The concept of the program as well as the organization is very good.

I really enjoyed the EPTP at the Université de Lausanne. I learned a lot about the different technical aspects of Transfer Pricing from very skilled and competent international presenters. Several speakers from in-house positions added a lot of practical insights to the technical aspects. The diversity of the participants, both from a background and origin perspective added a lot of value to the great discussions we had. I would definitely do it again and in other words strongly recommend that program.

Additionally, the program is a great opportunity to increase the professional network bringing together colleagues from various backgrounds, industries and countries.

The Executive Program in Transfer Pricing (EPTP) at the UNIL’s tax policy center brings together top-class speakers from the OECD, Tax Advisors, Multinational Enterprises' Tax Departments, Tax Administrations as well as Academics with an international audience of experienced practitioners. I particularly learned a lot about transfer pricing issues in other industries and the vivid discussion of the realistic case studies presented during the lectures helped me to look at transfer pricing issues from different perspectives. I have experienced the EPTP as very well organised and the documentation provided often serves me as a reference book in my daily work.

I strongly recommend the executive program in transfer pricing organized by the University of Lausanne. It is the perfect blend between well targeted theoretical review of transfer pricing concepts and practical and solution orientated inputs from highly qualified practitioners. Coming from a finance background with limited experience in international tax I was surprised how well structured the program is and how easy it was for me to catch up on the different topics. The evolution of the transfer pricing environment has also been covered by recognized experts in the matters allowing participants to understand the challenges of the upcoming changes in  transfer pricing regulations. I’d like to thank Natacha Fauconnier, Vikram Chand and Professor Danon for putting together such a great program and I strongly recommend anyone working in a multinational and exposed to transfer pricing to enroll in the next editions of the program.

Attending the fourth edition of EPTP (2019) was a truly memorable experience for me. The faculty during the entire course was diverse, topnotch and the learning experience was both stimulating and challenging. The icing on the cake was the camaraderie that I made with the entire class and there was never a dull moment. The course opened up a gateway for what will hopefully be a lifetime journey of learning in transfer pricing. I strongly recommend this course for those who wish to study Transfer Pricing both from an academic and a practitioner point of view. My sincere gratitude to Prof. Dr. Danon, Dr. Vikram Chand and the entire faculty for designing the course and the study material and to Mrs. Natacha for the wonderful administrative arrangements.

I joined the Transfer Pricing Executive Program, because my company expanded my finance role into the operational area of transfer pricing. My expectation was to get quickly (5 times 3 days) a good grasp of the burning BEPS related topics and associated risks for the MNE industry in a comprehensive and structured way. Theory and case studies are nicely balanced and the lecturers (TP consultants, members of country’s competent authorities, TP managers of MNE) are very experienced. I highly recommend this Program to anyone, who is either new to the topic of transfer pricing or keen to know more about it.

Due to the international nature of cross-border tax transfer pricing, an international group of participants from all over the world came together to join the expert program in transfer pricing at UNIL’s tax policy center. Personally, the fourth edition of the expert program in transfer pricing gave me the opportunity to deep dive into OECD’s transfer pricing perspective. Moreover, it was enriching to discuss transfer pricing issues with lecturers from international tax administrations, consultancy companies and research institutions enjoying high reputation within international transfer pricing environment. The structure of the program included both, classes arranged by chapters as well as case studies with a more integrated view on either design of transfer pricing or discussions within tax audits.

An experience abroad is always a moment in which we ask ourselves to give more efforts. It takes focus, personality and passion. Expectations are very high. I joined EPTP to deeply understand transfer pricing and my expectations are totally met.

I found an effective Faculty coming from different fields (academia, top consulting firms, MNEs and revenue services) with a perfect balance of theoretical and practical experience. I also had the unique opportunity to extend my network to clever classmates and share with them viewpoints, worries and sometimes dreams. I strongly recommend Executive Program in Transfer Pricing to anyone who doesn't want to stop learning in its life.




Alissa Fedi

I had experience in International Tax but a limited know-how in Transfer Pricing, so I decided to enrol on the Executive Program in Transfer Pricing (EPTP) to learn about this hot and always more important topic. 

I learnt a lot not only about Transfer Pricing, functional analysis and methods, but also about many other concepts involved in this field: business models in different sectors, supply chains, business restructuring, laws and cases in many jurisdictions. 

My expectations were fully met: the course was very challenging and really provided a wide-ranging view. 

EPTP was well structured by Dr. Vikram Chand and Prof. Danon and was a perfect mix of theory and practical cases on each topic. 

I had the unique possibility of meeting a lot of professionals and representatives of big multinational companies who shared their knowledge with us. And in the class I found some good friends too.

I am proud I was part of this program and I can only recommend it to anyone who wants to learn and advance in Transfer Pricing, open his mind and get inspired.

I enrolled in the Transfer Pricing Executive Program to increase my knowledge of international taxation and to gain a better understanding of the tax issues multinational clients may have.

The course allowed me to build a solid theoretical background in transfer pricing and, at same time, to have practical testimonials from TP experts working with in- house multinational companies and tow consulting firms.

I strongly recommend this course to anyone that is interested in a TP career or interested to further their knowledge in international tax matters.

The Executive Program in Transfer Pricing (EPTP) is a demanding and intriguing course about an utterly relevant topic, that has just started to take form. Transfer pricing will be continously challenging for academics, consultant specialist and government (tax) representatives for many years and this program provides an outlook and seat on the front row of the current debates. A great mixture between theoretical classes and practical cases in the heart of vibrant Lausanne. I am very grateful to have met all the lecturers, fellow students and dr.

As tax advisor for multinational enterprises, I have been faced with numerous transfer pricing cases.
The topic of transfer pricing is going the be more and more important in years to come, following the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project.
I had to improve my capacities in dealing with transfer pricing cases; therefore I decided to follow the Executive Program in Transfer Pricing (EPTP) at the University of Lausanne.
The EPTP was very interesting and provided a complete overview of all the transfer pricing topics that multinational enterprises are facing.
Having followed this course, I am much more confident in handling transfer pricing cases.
The teachers and the teaching material were very good.
There was also a good balance between theory and practice.
I can only recommend following the EPTP.

The good balance between theory and practice enables the participants to navigate through all TP-issues. This is particularly true due to the lecturers. They are all highly skilled specialists, absolute experts in their field, and well selected: They are inhouse-counsels, represent tax authorities, or come from advisory/law firms.

It is hard to imagine that a transfer pricing program could be any deeper and more thorough than the Executive Program in Transfer Pricing at Lausanne University. The knowledge in transfer pricing by the program's lecturer, Mr Vikram Chand, and the multiple external lecturers is excellent. I left the lecture room feeling inspired every time.  

The program is is very well structured and detailed. The topics are presented by Mr Chand and other top speakers from various industries mainly through case studies making the learning interactive. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in transfer pricing.

I had the chance to participate to the first edition of the ETPT program at Unil. Globalisation, the OECD's work and transfer pricing development is the hot topic for all tax practitioners. The EPTP program offers the opportunity to give an academical background to transfer pricing specialists and is the entrance door to better knowledge for all tax lawyers with a more generalist field of activity. The courses are highly valuable and offer the unique opportunity to meet people from various countries with very different backgrounds and job positions. I particularly enjoyed the courses held by Dr. Vikram Chand, director of the program who is able to explain very complex and abstract matters in very clear layman’s terms.
