Deltak edu, LLC, a provider of online higher education services, is expanding its partnership with Boston University to launch BU’s Master of Law degree (LL.M.) in Taxation in an online format. This is the second master’s degree program Deltak has introduced online with the University, having launched its Master of Social Work degree in 2011. Boston University’s graduate tax program, which was started in 1959 and was among the first of its kind in the country, has been ranked fifth among American law schools offering the program, according to the 2013 edition of U.S. News and World Report’s rankings.
Deltak, which has successfully launched more than 100 online degree programs for colleges and universities around the country, will assist Boston University in bringing its enriching LL.M. in Taxation degree online. The program reflects a mastery of the practice, ethics, and subtleties of tax law and prepares students for a variety of careers through electives, allowing students to concentrate on courses that allow for exposure to all areas of tax or courses that will prepare them for specialization in a particular area, such as business organizations and transactions; estate planning and wealth management; or international tax. The same quality educational experience offered to on-campus students will now be offered online.
