*We consider and conditionally admit applicants before they have taken these courses, but they must complete them with a C or better before enrolling in MBT courses.


The following factors are considered when looking at applications:

  • Academic record
  • Test scores (GMAT or LSAT), required unless candidates meet waiver qualifications
  • Relevant work experience in the tax field
  • CPA certification


Completed applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. All applicants will receive an admissions decision via email. The process can take four to six weeks.
