The USC Leventhal School of Accounting will offer a new online version of its top-ranked Master in Business Taxation degree this fall.
The Master of Business Taxation for Working Professionals (MBT.WP) is a 30-unit online degree program designed for tax and accounting professionals with a minimum of one year’s experience in the field of taxation. The program launches later this month.
Degree requirements are identical to USC Leventhal’s campus-based MBT.WP program and will be taught by the same faculty. Students may complete the program in as few as 21 months, and the first graduates are expected in May 2015.
“We are proud to offer this online version of our world-class program and to support accounting professionals as they broaden their skills in our complex and quickly evolving profession,” said USC Leventhal Dean William W. Holder, a professor of accounting and holder of the Alan Casden Dean’s Chair.
Students will begin with one or two courses in the first semester, continuing a gradual rollout of five core courses and a choice of electives. They may proceed at their own pace, adjusting class schedules to balance work schedules and busy lives.
USC Leventhal’s masters programs rank fourth among the nation’s graduate accounting and tax programs. The MBT.WP is one of three online degrees launched by the USC Marshall School of Business this calendar year, including a Master of Global Supply Chain Management and a Master of Management in Library and Information Science.
