MTax Program Details
Weber State’s Master of Taxation (MTax) program has an exceptional track record of preparing working professionals and full-time students for specialized tax jobs in various organizations. Few MTax programs in the world, let alone in Utah, can match the combination of quality, convenience, and connection offered at the Goddard School of Business and Economics.
Our program benefits students with small class sizes, which means more time with highly qualified professors. Our students also have direct access to Goddard’s impressive alum network, with many Weber graduates at large organizations. Nothing is more important than the return students get for their tuition investment.
