Master of Taxation

The MTax program is a specialized graduate degree-preparing students for a lucrative career in taxation. Launched in fall 2017, the MTax inherits the unique course structure offered in our top ranking Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program. This structure allows students to complete the program in just one year- taking two eight-week courses over the fall, spring and summer sessions all centered around the four parts of the CPA exam. This design has resulted in our students earning a successful 88 percent first-time pass rate on the Certified Public Accountancy (CPA) exam, nearly doubling the national average pass rate.

The program is also one of only 175 business schools in the world to hold both a business and accounting accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Learn more
