“Never before has the job market for tax professionals been so vibrant. The Master of Taxation program trains students to meet the challenging demands of the profession," said Jay Soled, professor and director of the Master of Accountancy in Taxation. "As the dynamic world of tax has evolved, so has the Master in Taxation program, offering students the broadest array of course selection.”

“For anyone looking to become a tax professional, armed with the determination to acquire soft and hard skills, this program is for you.”
Alberto Marinas, Master of Taxation ‘21

The Master of Taxation was the catalyst Alberto Marinas was looking for when he decided to start a second career, this time in tax. “Every professor navigated the countless regulations and federal rulings with personal stories of their application in real life, bringing color and context to the material,” he said.

“Midway through the program,” Marinas continued, “when I expressed my interest in real estate tax, one of the professors insisted I applied to a firm where he is a director. Three interviews later and leveraging his friendship, I have been at EisnerAmper for six months, networking internally and being exposed to high-level work."

“For anyone looking to become a tax professional, armed with the determination to acquire soft and hard skills, this program is for you,” Marinas said.

Graduates are highly sought by all major accounting firms and corporations as evidenced by the jobs they take with some of the most prestigious firms, including; EisnerAmper, CohnReznick, WithumSmith + Brown, and the Big Four.

Using web-based technology, students are allowed the flexibility of attending class wherever it is most convenient for them. Courses are live-streamed from the classroom in real-time so students can attend classes in person on the Newark campus or off-site through video conferencing. Exams are held in person; however, the online option provides added convenience.

Master of Taxation is a 30-credit, online-hybrid, part-time program designed for the busy, working professional. It is highly flexible and provides a competitive advantage for professionals seeking to advance in the field of taxation. It also satisfies the 150-hour requirement for the CPA exam.
