Tax professionals come to ILLINOIS for the challenge of an excellent education.
The Program delivers an excellent educational experience designed to take tax professionals to the next level in their careers. The small cohort (up to 40 students) fosters teamwork and group activities similar to those in the business world and provides an opportunity to network with other high performers in the profession.
Additionally, students can complete the Program and reap the benefits in 12 months without interrupting their careers.
Consistent with the profession’s belief that a graduate tax education is more “profitable” after some real-world experience, the Program requires students to have at least 2 years of work experience prior to enrolling. This business experience broadens and deepens student learning in the Program while enabling them to enrich the learning experience of other outstanding tax professionals in the class.
The MS Tax Program is committed to creating a rich and diverse setting in which higher learning takes place. We build our unique curriculum on principles of mutual trust, ethics, personal enrichment, the free flow of ideas, constant improvement, and team work. Because we believe our students are an integral part of who we are and what we can accomplish, we assemble each class with outstanding tax professionals from companies and firms who have a broad range of tax experience and are each committed to excellence. We demand the highest performance and principled behavior of those who join our legacy and no less of ourselves.
