“You will find some really great people in [the Master of Business Taxation program], and it was really helpful for me to meet, study and spend time with them outside of school. Not everyone knows what it’s like to go through a program like this, so it was really helpful to have friends I could talk with, commiserate with—and rejoice with when we succeeded.”
