The School’s undergraduate tax program was included among the most highly regarded in the nation, according to a recent survey of tax hiring authorities by JobsinTax, based on the responses of 106 heads of corporate tax departments nationwide.
DePaul’s Master of Science in Taxation (MST) program was ranked number one in a similar survey of heads of corporate tax departments and alumni of MST programs by JobsinTax, part of the Tax Talent Network, in September of 2012.
In the recent survey, respondents were asked to select up to 5 undergraduate programs nationwide that they hold in the highest regard from the over 100 listed in Bloomberg Businessweek’s rankings. Departments were then ranked based on the votes they received. DePaul, amidst many ties, emerged as No. 10.
DePaul was tied with Indiana University, the University of Florida and UC Berkeley.
“Our undergraduate program did quite well,” reported David Roberts, associate professor and director of the school’s undergraduate tax program. “Many of the schools ranked in the top ten are quite prestigious. We’re in some very good company.”
School director Kevin Stevens had high praise for the excellent and experienced tax faculty, both full time and adjunct, as one of the university’s great strengths, along with close working relations with business, especially the tax community.
