In today's world, tax issues are inescapable, increasingly complex and constantly changing. That is why our program focuses on building a better tax lawyer who develops the "tax sense" necessary to resolve tax problems with confidence.
Our location in Miami – the pivot point between S. America, N. America and Europe – enables us to draw upon the region's diverse perspectives and career-building opportunities.
Classes are offered in an order that makes sense – students take foundational courses in the fall, and in spring they build on concepts already introduced to tackle increasingly complex issues and choose electives to develop a deeper understanding of their specific areas of interest.
Our select program size (around 30 students) allows for our Program Director Patricia Brown to meet with each student to develop a personalized course schedule and guidance on career options.
The Program's new director, Patricia Brown, is an internationally-recognized expert in the field of international taxation, with specialties in tax treaty policy and the international taxation of financial products and institutions. Read More
"As a German tax professional, the graduate program provided a high level of international Tax experience in a great atmosphere. I enjoyed the US Tax point of view as well as the International Tax Aspects - from the perspective of both countries. It was a rewarding and challenging program for me and I would do it again."
