Since its inception in 1987, hundreds of professionals have benefited from the advanced tax training provided by this graduate program, the first and only one of its kind in Maryland.

The Master of Science in Taxation program was created in response to the increasing complexity of the field and its critical impact on the effective management of business, financial, industrial, governmental and nonprofit organizations. The program not only prepares students for careers as professional tax advisers, but also sharpens their knowledge and skills through a sophisticated, challenging educational environment. Our students benefit from the caliber of their classmates, most of whom are working professionals seeking career enhancement or advancement. The courses are geared toward tax advisers in the legal and accounting professions and those who are involved in developing fiscal policy and managing public and nonprofit organizations.

The Master of Science in Taxation program fulfills the 150 hour education requirement for a Certified Public Accountant license in Maryland.
