Master of Science in Taxation

A Career beyond Tax Returns

Today’s tax accountant is a financial strategist, a key player in helping organizations and individuals understand tax implications before they make decisions, not after.

Going well beyond filing tax returns, tax professionals help corporations and small businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies navigate the complexities of tax laws to understand how their taxes fit into the bigger financial picture.
