This outcome allows students to demonstrate strong interpersonal communication skills that build relationships with clients over time, and be able to prepare work products with careful attention to word choice, tone, and accuracy.

Students will be able to analyze business and tax objectives, issues and problems and identify the data necessary for solutions. They will integrate data tools and languages and communicate answers in pragmatic and understandable terms.

Research / Life-Long Learning

Students will use computer-based and paper-based systems to thoroughly research and analyze tax codes, tax law, rulings and interpretations, providing for adaptability as the tax law changes over time.

Ethical Principles and Professional Standards

Students will demonstrate understanding of and apply consistently the ethical principles and professional standards related to the profession, including the standards in taking a tax position. Students will also show the ability to express and follow rules of independence exhibiting the highest sense of professional ethics.

Globalization and Diversity
