Master of Accounting

This graduate degree helps ensure success in public accounting, private industry, auditing, assurance services, advisory services, consulting and strategic finance.
Master of Business Taxation
The Jennifer and James R. Parks Master of Business Taxation (MBT) program provides an in-depth specialization in taxation and analytical skills designed to prepare students for a successful career in the tax field. Intended for today’s professionals using technology and data tools in applying the breadth of tax law and regulations, the program provides students with the technical, analytical, and communication skills necessary to assist clients large and small.
Master of Business Taxation for Working Professionals
For fully employed tax professionals who are ready to deepen and broaden their knowledge of taxation and learn research techniques critical to success as a professional. Minimum one-year tax-related experience required for MBT.WP program.
From the moment you enroll, you will experience the nature of the Trojan Family Network, which cuts across campus to include students and alumni from each of USC’s schools.
At Leventhal and Marshall, we believe our strong alumni network is a true differentiator. We operate by the guiding principle that engaged students will become engaged alumni and engaged alumni are essential for a great student experience. Students are given the opportunity to make impactful connections with alumni who return to Leventhal as guest lecturers, career mentors, and open doors to their professional networks. The involvement by students and alumni is intended to foster a true vested interest in each other’s success and in the School that continues beyond commencement.
329 DAYS OF SUNSHINE PER YEAR
We are home in Southern California.
Los Angeles, the third largest metropolitan economy in the world, is home to the USC Marshall School of Business.
Since its earliest days, Los Angeles has been a center for innovation and creativity, an outpost on the edge of an ocean that invited dreamers to try and make their dreams a reality.
Los Angeles is the iconic home of the entertainment industry, as well as the birthplace of the modern aerospace industry, which brought millions of returning GIs into the middle class.
Los Angeles encompasses 4,000 square miles, stretching from the Pacific Coast eastward to Mt. Baldy (10,000 feet high) to parts of the Mojave Desert. The county contains 88 incorporated cities and many unincorporated communities.
A Global Gateway
L.A. is the primary economic gateway to the Pacific Rim. The Port of Los Angeles is the #1 container port by volume in the United States. The Los Angeles Customs District, which includes the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, Port Hueneme and LAX, is the nation’s largest, with more than $400 billion in trade.

Choice of Three Degrees
Choose the degree that is right for you based on your background and interests. Whether you have no previous work experience or are currently working in the tax professions, we have the degree for you with flexibility in the courses you take.
ACCOUNTING FOR GOOD
“Sustainability doesn’t stop at the environment and climate change. It also means providing fair wages, housing, and safe conditions for communities where these businesses are based. This is why we teach these concepts to our students. It’s important they understand how sustainability factors into business leadership.”
— Smrity Randhawa, Assistant Dean Leventhal Undergraduate Programs and Associate Professor of Clinical Accounting
WHY ESG IS
The Role of the Profession: Accounting for Good by William Holder
"Accounting may not have the most obvious path toward bringing justice to the world, saving the planet, housing the homeless or feeding the hungry, but as one exceptionally gifted accounting thinker has observed, accountants can contribute meaningfully to the diminution of the world’s maladies."
— William Holder, Dean of the Leventhal School of Accounting
Curriculum: Business, Society, and Sustainability
“Students get it. They understand they’ll be the ones making decisions and know the impact they can have if they are aware of the issues.”
— Greys Sošić, Data Sciences and Operations Department Chair and E. Morgan Stanley Chair in Business Administration
Setting the Sustainability Reporting Standards Investors Demand
“There is a whole ecosystem evolving to support preparers and users of sustainability reports…These roles are in high demand and require new skills and so should present valuable career opportunities for our students.”
— Richard Sloan, Deloitte and Touche LLP Chair in Accounting and Professor of Accounting, Finance, and Business Economics
