The Master of Business Administration degree with a specialization in Taxation (M.B.A. – Taxation) provides the student with a broad business knowledge and prepares him or her for cross-functional decision-making. The M.B.A. curriculum gives the student a deeper understanding of management problems and the business firm’s position in the economic structure of society. Offered on campus and online, the goal of the taxation specialization is to provide the student with an opportunity to focus in the technical area of taxation so that he or she will be able to enter and advance in the profession of public accounting as a tax specialist or in corporate management in the tax area. Accounting and business decisions must be evaluated in terms of possible tax implications and consequences. The M.B.A. – Taxation program will not qualify a student to sit for the CPA examination in the State of New York.
