MST Careers

Taxes are one of life’s certainties.
So is your employability after this program.

As society evolves, so does the tax code, in response to such developments as the legalization of same-sex marriage or changes in the regulation of mergers and acquisitions. Because the Gabelli School MST faculty is made up of working professionals, our program keeps up with those changes in real time. That means you’ll graduate with the most current technical know-how, combined with a rich background in communication and business skills. That profile is highly sought-after by today’s employers—and worth a significant pay increase for anyone already working in the field.

Another big advantage? Our loyal alumni base. Former MST students tend to hire Gabelli School graduates because they have first-hand knowledge of our program’s rigor and real-world relevance.

Proven success

Our graduates have been hired for taxation positions in top international firms, including PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, E&Y, Citibank, Morgan Stanley, and CBS.
