I picked the MS in Taxation program at Northeastern because of the curriculum. I really liked the way it was laid out. I liked the concept of there being a broad base that covered the core areas of taxation, and then also allowed you to individually personalize. One thing that was critical in my decision was the offering of two different international taxation classes.
