Graduate Certificate in Corporate Taxation

As of September 2021, the MST program is no longer recruiting new students or accepting applications. Those interested in participating in the Graduate Certificate in Corporate Taxation will be eligible to apply completed courses as part of this certificate to a future MSA.

This program is designed for practitioners not currently working in public accounting or looking to move into corporate taxation.

Tax planning and professional practice are emphasized through realistic tax cases and the completion of a comprehensive corporate tax return problem, with an additional focus on incorporating tax research methods and professional writing and communication skills. Electives include international taxation as well as tax in mergers and acquisitions.

This certificate program is designed to be completed part-time in one semester on campus. You can continue to build on your tax knowledge by stacking the Graduate Certificate in Corporate Taxation with our Graduate Certificates in Tax Audit Defense, Fundamentals of Taxation, or Taxation of Wealth.

If you apply to the MS in Accounting (MSA) degree program or another eligible graduate business degree program, you may be able to apply the courses in this certificate program to reduce the time it will take to complete your master’s degree.

Courses are taught by leading faculty members at the Sawyer Business School, which is ranked among the best in the world.
