Rachel Croson, dean of the College of Business surveyed 127 heads of corporate tax departments across the nation to rank the master’s programs. Baylor University was the only other Texas institution to make the list, which includes DePaul University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, among others.

The new report also provides a comparison analysis based on the results of the 2012 master’s of science tax survey according to tax-hiring authorities.

Accounting Department Chair Chandra Subramaniam said the ranking reflects the hard work on the part of College of Business faculty members and the students they serve.

“Our tax faculty really deserve the credit in teaching students methods, processes and information they need to be successful on the job front,” Subramaniam said.

Rachel Croson, dean of the College of Business, said the demand is high for UT Arlington graduates in tax education.

“Businesses are recognizing the source they have here at UT Arlington,” Croson said. “We are honored to receive the ranking for the second year in a row.”
