Masters of Tax
The Master of Accounting (M.AC.) and Master of Taxation (M.TX.) degree programs share the same goal: to provide accounting education to a diverse group of students to help them become successful professionals in local, national, and global enterprises. This goal will be accomplished by providing programs that aid students in developing technical, analytical, communication, interpersonal, and lifelong learning skills.
The Master of Taxation degree program was designed to meet the demand for tax specialists in public accounting, private industry, and government. To this end, its objectives include rigorous development of
- Technical competence;
- An appreciation of tax policy;
- A conceptual understanding of taxation; and
- An awareness of the responsibilities of a tax professional in today’s society.
The courses of the M.TX. program may be used to satisfy education requirements of the CPA and other professional licenses.
