Master of Science Accounting with a Concentration in Taxation (MS)

Frank Holman, Graduate Program Director

Objective: To provide a curriculum that facilitates the promotion of professional judgment/skepticism and critical thinking skills that add value in decision making.

Focus: Students have the option of aligning coursework based on two areas of interest (concentrations): Financial Management addresses the needs of students who have an interest in operational and financial decision making, and Taxation provides the requisite skills set for those interested in tax compliance and planning. Both associate with careers in Public Accounting, Industry, or Government/Not-For-Profit organizations and prepare students for the CPA and other professional designations/licenses (i.e. CMA, CIA, CFE, CISA, CGFM, etc.).
