With a TaxTalent Top-20 ranking and the only MST program in Boston with supplemental AACSB accreditation, the Suffolk MST can help prepare you for a successful career in taxation.
The Master of Science in Taxation (MST) Program will prepare you to become a successful tax professional in public accounting, the corporate sector, or government. The Suffolk MST distinguishes itself from other programs by assuring student competence in three key areas of tax practice: tax compliance, tax planning, and tax policy.
As a graduate, you will have competence in accounting, a sound understanding of tax issues in a global environment, and an ability to apply this knowledge effectively in tax planning and problem solving situations. You will also have strong communication and research skills and a keen appreciation of the ethical standards of professional practice.
Your courses, taught by a mix of tax practitioners and researchers—including CPAs and attorneys who practice in the public, corporate, and government sectors—encourage you to leverage your knowledge of tax issues in a global environment. You can specialize in large or local firms, or choose electives that prepare you for the CPA exam. You'll also have access to our EDGE Professional Development workshops. Led by executive coaches and corporate consultants, the workshops help you build your resume, expand your network, write a cover letter, polish your interview skills, and more.
Suffolk’s MST is designed to meet the needs of those who have a background in accounting as well as those who do not.
