Offered under the FAU College of Business, School of Accounting, The Executive Master of Taxation is a 2-year AACSB-accredited degree program tailored to busy professionals who want to study the advanced aspects of taxation under a blue-ribbon faculty and curricula.
The program is offered in such a way that busy professionals can complete the entire program through web-based distance learning without ever once visiting the campus. On the other hand, virtually all courses are offered with optional on-campus lectures, so students desiring the traditional campus experience can attend the lectures as often or as little as desired.
The on-campus lecture classes last 1 to 1 1/2 hours each, rather than the usual 3 hours, making it possible to easily attend 2 classes on Saturday mornings. Those who don't wish to attend any given class may receive a video distributed either via the net or express mail. Videos not distributed directly over the web are distributed on CD Rom and/or DVD format, so that they can be viewable on almost any computer. Our goal is to make the videos available anywhere in the world, and even to the traveling professional who may be away from the home office for weeks at a time. Watch/listen to the lectures
If you choose to attend some or all of the time as a distance learning student you can be assured of receiving fresh, interesting and up-to-date online lectures from top experts in the field. Lectures can be downloaded to a notebook computer and listened to while driving in the car. The audio portions can even be converted to standard tape or audio CD and listened to while jogging. Regardless of how you attend, you receive all the benefits of a top-notch education from an AACSB/SACS accredited institution without interrupting your life or suffering the hassles of a conventional program.
In all courses the on-campus lectures are to be supplemented with professor-guided case discussion groups offered via the web. All examinations and assignments are hosted on the web, making it possible for the busy executive to complete the entire program without once visiting the campus.
A key goal of the program is to build life-long relationships among the students and faculty. Those that begin the program together will stay together throughout the entire program and become part of a small highly-personalized environment.
Those attending the on-campus lectures will find the professors warm, knowledgeable, and helpful, always there to go the extra mile. No expenses are spared in providing state of the art "wired" classrooms, and the overall program schedule includes regular participation from top experts in Taxation from all around the world.
Those attending strictly via the net will find the same warmth and guidance found in the on-campus lectures. The faculty are all specially trained in ways to build warm personal relationships over the net. Many students who have taken our distance learning courses have hailed them as great learning experiences and the best courses they have taken throughout their entire academic career.
