The Master of Business Taxation (MBT) Program is a rigorous, challenging, and rewarding experience that will deepen your understanding of the field of taxation and illuminate new professional paths.

We look for applicants who have strong academic backgrounds and a commitment to improving their professional communities. Applicants should have a strong familiarity with the fundamentals of business management.


Candidates must have:

  • an undergraduate degree (in any field)

*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
