California State University, Northridge’s Department of Accounting and Information Systems has received its fair share of recognition the past several months. The Master of Science (MS) in Taxation program was named among the best in the nation by both CollegeChoice.net and best-accounting-schools.com in 2016.
Now, in 2017, the master’s (27th) and undergraduate (23rd) programs have been nationally ranked in TaxTalent’s “2017 Top in Tax Educational Survey,” which identifies leading accounting and tax college programs according to tax employers. Also joining the taxation program on the list is the master’s in accountancy program, which was ranked 20th.
“[These recognitions] are a further endorsement of the high-quality education that CSUN provides its students,” said Rafi Efrat, accountancy professor and director of the MS in Taxation program. “One that cultivates students’ engagement, with a strong focus on experiential learning, and one that is responsive to the evolving needs of the employers and the profession.”
Efrat, as well as Accounting and Information Systems Department Chair Rishma Vedd, attribute the department’s success to its focus on high-level, practice-orientated tax curriculum as well as the quality of professors who teach the subject on campus.
