New Tax LLM Rankings by Corporate Tax Department Heads

TaxTalent.com, in conjunction with JobsInTax.com has released their annual ranking of tax LLM programs by surveying corporate tax department heads.  This seems a far better methodology than the US News and World Report tax LLM rankings which rely on peer rankings by other tax LLM program faculty.

1. NYU (61.2% of respondents voted for this school in the top 5 for hiring  candidates)

2. Georgetown (52.6%)

3. Northwestern (19.7%)

4. Florida (17.8%)

5. Boston University (17.1%)

Although the top programs are of no surprise.  The data is surprising.  The conclusion is that the top programs for hiring are NYU and Georgetown.  While Florida is #2 in the US News Rankings, it does not seem to provide the same cache for hiring managers as NYU and Georgetown.  Could Florida’s relatively smaller class size be a factor?
