You’ll also learn how to analyze and evaluate the tax implications of proposed transactions – making your skills invaluable to employers and setting you apart from other taxation experts.

A compass for navigating the code
As a graduate student working toward your MS in Taxation, you’ll learn alongside CU law students to practice navigating the tax code—a skill in high demand as U.S. tax regulations undergo major changes. Some of your classes will even take place at the University of Colorado Law School, helping you develop a stable foundation of legal knowledge as it pertains to taxes. As part of our comprehensive MS Taxation program, you’ll develop and sharpen your accounting skills from a legal perspective, thereby enhancing the practical business applications of your taxation coursework.
A program that pays
Paid internships allow you to gain valuable work experience and course credit as you pursue your MS in Taxation degree. This real-world experience benefits you as you become more proficient and fluent in the “language of business,” and positions you for successful interviews with public accounting firms in advisory, audit and tax services.
