The way to a Rutgers Master of Accountancy in Taxation just got shorter for some students

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

Rutgers Business School will begin offering Master of Accountancy in Taxation classes on the Livingston Campus, expanding the program beyond Newark for the first time.

For years, the part-time master’s program has drawn students from as far away as Voorhees in Camden County who complete 30 credits worth of classes, often while juggling the responsibilities of careers and families.

"The expansion is intended to make Rutgers as convenient as possible for those who want to get a better grasp of the study of taxation," said Professor Jay Soled, who is also the program director.

As many as five classes may be offered on the Livingston Campus next year.

The location of the campus in Central New Jersey will make the master’s program more easily accessible to students living in Princeton and more southern areas of the state. The distance between Voorhees and Newark is roughly 84 miles. In comparison, Piscataway is about 66 miles from Voorhees, according to Google Maps.

Students are currently able to take one of the core courses, Federal Income Taxation, at the Rutgers Business School building on the Livingston Campus. The class is offered on Saturday mornings.

Other classes, including Corporate Law, are also offered on Sundays to help students juggle classes and demanding work schedules. "Working professionals love this flexibility," Soled said.

Weekend classes will continue to be offered through the summer.

The Master of Accountancy in Taxation is a premier program providing a deep understanding of the technical, conceptual and research issues related to taxation. It combines the strengths of Rutgers Business School and the Rutgers School of Law. Courses also provide students with a better grasp of the ethical and legal obligations of practicing in the field of tax collection.
