Meet Our MS Taxation Students
SJSU's MST program has both full-time and part-time students. Many students are working tax professionals in CPA firms, industry and government. Some students are earning an MST as part of a plan to change careers. Some students are completing their MST degree in between completion of their undergraduate accounting degree and entering the tax accounting profession. The mix of students offers a helpful professional networking environment.
What have alums said about the SJSU MST program?
SJSU MST 2011
My time devoted to earning my MST at San Jose State went by quickly; when I finished my last class, it seemed that I had only started yesterday. Thank you for helping me through the whole MST studies and also providing me valuable opportunities which resulted in an internship and successful start of a career at PwC. The whole MST program is well designed and I feel that I truly learned a lot and found the courses and additional activities such as the personal leadership workshop so useful during the internship. Thank you very much for providing such a great masters program.

SJSU MST 2007
I recently completed the MST program at San Jose State University. The program provided me with excellent general tax knowledge and the ability to research complex technical issues and express the findings both verbally and in writing. I have been able to combine my MST knowledge together with my work experience to provide a high level of tax consulting for Fortune 500 Companies in Silicon Valley as well as continuing to grow my private tax practice that deals primarily with small businesses.

I truly enjoyed being in the program. Most of the satisfaction comes from the quality of instructorship - each professor I met ignited my interest in the areas each of them taught and further reinforced my confidence in the decision to pursue the program and the tax profession.
I can't say enough "thank you's" to SJSU for developing and fostering such a rewarding program!
