Faculty

The executive-style format of our curriculum draws the very best faculty from Champaign and outstanding tax professionals in Chicago to teach for the MS Tax Program. The rich engagement of so many talented students compels our faculty to participate in the program. They love the challenge. The resulting environment is full of opportunities for engagement, discussion, and learning about the major factors influencing tax and business today, such as globalization, governance and risk management.

The MS Tax Program includes top ILLINOIS faculty from the Urbana-Champaign campus and renowned Chicago tax practitioners from industry and the profession who bring real-time experience to the classroom.
