The beauty of the ILLINOIS tax curriculum is its close relationship
to the people and policies that influence the direction of
taxation in business and government. The MS Tax Program in
Chicago attracts top executives to its Lyceum Speaker Series
who discuss current issues and business cases that may not
yet be found in textbooks.
We believe that our students benefit greatly from the lessons
of leaders when they hear first-hand of the challenges faced
by prominent executives and have the opportunity to ask tough
questions. In the context of our classroom environment, discussions
reach a level of frankness and strategic detail that students
might otherwise not gain exposure to.
The Lyceum Speaker Series is usually held twice per term on
Friday evenings in conjunction with a reception and formal dinner.
Special invitees also attend, allowing students to network with
an elite group of professionals from multiple industries.
