MST Program Learning Goals
In Fall 2004, core MST faculty met with members of the program advisory board to develop
program learning goals. Those goals are listed below.
Upon completion of the program, students will be able to achieve these:
To identify and understand complex tax issues within the context of the global business world.
To learn research skills that will assist in exploring both familiar and novel areas of the tax law
and communicate the findings in clear terms.
To appreciate multi-jurisdictional tax issues.
To develop conceptual and analytic skills with real world applications.
To appreciate tax policy issues and foundations of the income tax law.
To understand the ethical implications of tax practice.
