The flexible schedule allows working professionals to pursue their degree at their own pace: students need to complete the 12 semester units over a 5-year period. While a taxation-related MS, MBA or LLM degree from Golden Gate University is highly preferred, students with tax degrees from other schools may be accepted upon approval of the dean.


This certificate requires completion of 12 units of graduate courses. Qualifying courses include all those leading to the Master of Science in Taxation.


Admission to the advanced studies in taxation program is open to those individuals who have received a taxation related MS, MBA or LLM degree from Golden Gate University.

Please note that some courses taken as part of certificate programs will have prerequisites. These prerequisites must be satisfied (through transfer of equivalent coursework or through taking the courses at Golden Gate) before the certificate courses can be completed.
