Taxation Certificates

Graduate Certificates are a way to engage and develop yourself without committing to a multi-year degree program as a working professional. Designed to target specific functional areas of interest to employers, Carlson Graduate Certificates allow students to enroll in 12 credits (4-6 courses) of graded, transcripted coursework that can usually be completed in a single academic year. Candidates who complete a certificate may apply it to the Master of Business Taxation program should they decide to continue.

The Certificate of Taxation focuses on the core taxation subjects that form the backbone of the degree program. Research, Communication & Practice is a four-credit writing-intensive course that represents the signature course of the MBT program. IRS Practice and Procedure is the substantive area of taxation that provides the backdrop for the course. Two-credit courses in Corporate Taxation, Partnership Taxation, and Accounting Methods are the other required courses for the Certificate.
