When EY needed an online solution for educating their tax professionals in India and Argentina, the Legal Studies and Taxation department led by Professor Vince Barrella made it happen.
Legal Studies and Taxation faculty formulated a plan drawing on Pace’s pivot to remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The faculty was able to convert the existing MS in Taxation program to a completely asynchronous format that met the needs of EY employees abroad, while ensuring that the historic quality of the degree was preserved. The EY program has served as the prototype for the new asynchronous online MS in Taxation degree available to all tax professionals this coming Fall 2022 semester.
“Pace’s strong focus on the accounting and tax profession, with a record number of Big Four partners and a top-tier MS program made the University a natural front-runner,” says Ashu Rathor ’01, an alumnus who leads EY’s Global Tax Delivery team around the world. Rathor found an ideal proposition at Lubin as he and his learning team were scouting for a school to bring a master in tax program for their top US tax executives.
“Coupled with that, Pace presented a customized virtual program that became critical during the pandemic. Flexibility on timing to line up with our busy season, topped with best faculty and commercial proposition convinced us we had no other option to go with but Pace.”
