Testimonials

“The executive tax program at FAU was a truly wonderful experience for me. The flexibility of the class location and schedule, the knowledge and experience that the professors were able to offer, and the relationships that I developed have all greatly served me during my career in public accounting. Because I was working full time in the tax area while enrolled in the program, I was able to apply what I learned from each class in real time, which helped me to progress rapidly in my career. I recommend the program to everyone who is devoted to gaining current and practical tax expertise and am very grateful to FAU for all that it shared with me.”

The Executive Master of Taxation is a degree program offered by the School of Accounting Executive Programs (SOAEP), a department in FAU’s AACSB-accredited and nationally recognized College of Business.

The program is designed with the busy tax professional’s schedule in mind.  Cutting edge technology in online learning offers students convenience and flexibility while pursuing their education.  Students may complete the program through Web-based distance learning without ever visiting campus.  Students can stream the lectures live over the Internet to their PC, Mac, or mobile device, or they can watch the lectures at any time during the week.  Those that desire a more traditional classroom experience may participate in the optional live lectures held on Saturday mornings at the Fort Lauderdale campus.

Students can earn their degrees in just over 2 years (seven semesters) while maintaining quality professional and personal lives.  To accommodate working professionals during the hectic tax seasons, no courses are offered during the spring semesters.  Therefore, tax students do not need to worry about balancing demanding work schedules with course assignment deadlines.

A faculty of academic and practitioner experts give students the unique opportunity to learn to integrate academic research with real life practice.  Instructors and practitioners collaborate in designing and teaching taxation courses.

SOAEP has a diverse student body comprising students from 35 states and several countries, including Norway, Germany, and Hungary.  A welcoming environment and high quality support services help students balance educational success with busy life schedules.  Throughout the program, students receive comprehensive academic assistance and 24/7 IT technical support.
