TaxTalent Campus

The Student Connection to the Tax Profession®


Tax Students
TaxTalent Campus was developed with the goal of exposing interested students to tax programs, organizations such as regional TEI chapters, courses and job opportunities early on so they can determine whether or not tax is a viable career option. By establishing a TaxTalent Campus chapter at your University, you will have access to the tools you need to gain knowledge, access, and experience to the tax world before you graduate.

Not only will your tax program build a strong reputation in the eyes of potential employers, but we also anticipate that your school will benefit from higher enrollment in both undergraduate finance and accounting as well as graduate tax programs.

Based on their commitment to tax and involvement with the profession, we are initially partnering with the following schools: The University of Texas at Austin, Houston, and Arlington, DePaul University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. If you are interested in establishing a TaxTalent Campus chapter at your school, please fill out the form on this page.
