Cal Poly Master's Degree Programs


MS Taxation

A master's degree is a must for those considering a career in the highly technical field of taxation, whether in public accounting, industry or government. Our M.S. Taxation's high-touch environment, specialized curriculum, small class sizes and Learn by Doing approach means students are fully prepared for jobs and successful careers immediately upon graduation. The M.S. Taxation is an intensive and rigorous 10-month program, with full-time classes held on campus. As a separate stand-alone degree in taxation, students receive a more in-depth education exclusively in taxation, compared to the curriculum of either a master of accountancy degree or a master of accountancy with a specialization in tax (both of which typically only include a few tax courses).
