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)
- completed ACCT 2050 Introduction to Financial Reporting and ACCT 5135 Fundamentals of Federal Income Tax (or their equivalents)*
*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
- Fall start: June 15
- Spring start: October 15
- Summer start: March 15
If space is available, we will accept applications after the deadline.
Completed applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. All applicants will receive an admissions decision via email. Admitted students will receive an admission packet in the mail. The process can take four to six weeks.
