Tax laws change, budgets rise and fall, corporate strategies adjust. Taxation professionals need a finely honed set of technical skills to stay on top of this ever-changing field. But if you ask Fordham University graduates for the secret of their success, they’ll tell you it’s about much more than mastery of the latest tax code.


The way to stand out—and move up—in this competitive field is to cultivate superior communication skills, creative problem-solving techniques, solid business instincts, and a clear-eyed view of moral and social responsibility.

At Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business, we teach every discipline—no matter how technical—with a unique emphasis on interpersonal and business skills. Our Master of Science in Taxation (MST) is no exception.

About the degree

The Taxation curriculum teaches skills in general tax, international tax, estate and gift tax, accounting, and communications. It allows students to define a minor area of concentration by taking electives in subjects that interest them. As a Jesuit university, Fordham offers a unique focus on ethical decision-making and social responsibility.
