Graduate Tax Program

Villanova University’s Graduate Tax Program—designed for legal, accounting and business professionals—offers students a learning experience few schools can match. Here, lawyers and accountants learn with and from each other in integrated classes that allow for in-depth, interdisciplinary examinations of tax principles and policies.

Conducted jointly by the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law and the Villanova School of Business, the program offers a Master of Laws in Taxation (LLM), Master of Taxation (MT) for non-lawyers, JD/LLM in Taxation, as well as Certificate Programs in specialized areas of taxation. Highlights include renowned faculty, comprehensive electives, a flexible format and the Nova Network.
