Tax and Financial Professionals online program

Posted by William Byrnes on February 20, 2014


When William Byrnes returned to the United States in 1998 to establish the International Finance and Taxation program leveraging online communication technologies, both international tax programs and distance learning programs were in their infancy. Through engaging a renown and talented faculty of industry professionals, and the support of an immensely engaged student body from professional and financial service firms, the international tax program blossomed over the past 15 years to become a cutting edge industry leader that it is today. Just recently, National Law Journal wrote “Perhaps no one in legal academia has more experience with online master’s degrees than William Byrnes, Associate Dean for Graduate and Distance Education Programs at Thomas Jefferson School of Law.” (May 20, 2013)

Each year William Byrnes chooses fourteen international tax students from the graduate online program to assist within tax compendium published by LexisNexis, WoltersKluwer, National Underwriter Co. (the Tax Facts series), and Merten’s Federal Income Taxation. By the time these students have reached international alumni status, many have developed into authors with several chapter and article citations.

William Byrnes created this graduate program around the needs of tax and financial professionals looking for advancement and efficiency for their career, be that to attract new clientele with global issues, better manage the budgets of outside international counsel, or to enhance their CV for the next round of promotion. Explore an international tax & financial services career by listening to his interview responses, then interacting with him via Skype or Google Hangout.

The remaining nations of the world will be covered in quarterly updates scheduled to go live in 2012 and 2013.
