Message from the Faculty Director

Tim Gagnon Welcome to Northeastern University’s Online Master of Science in Taxation. We have designed this program with the seasoned tax professional in mind. The program expands and enhances the tax professional’s knowledge about the various areas of the tax code and field of taxation.

Today’s tax environment demands the continuous development of the tax professional in a range of ever changing tax law. The practice of taxation becomes more complex every year with new laws, regulations, and court cases. Northeastern University’s Online Master of Science in Taxation is designed to prepare the tax professional to meet these changes and challenges. After completing the core courses, our program encourages students to refine their advanced knowledge by concentrating on one of two tracks: Taxation of Entities or Taxation of Individuals.

I encourage you to expand your knowledge of the tax field in a high tech caring environment at Northeastern University. Please speak with our enrollment office to learn more about the online program.
