Ernst & Young has launched Ernst & Young University-Tax, a virtual resource for higher tax learning and development.

EYU-Tax integrates three key elements to developing tax leaders -- learning, experience and apprenticeship. The firm's younger tax professionals must meet specific criteria in order to pass from through the program's graduate, post graduate and doctoral programs. All of the firm's tax professionals will be continuously enrolled in EYU-Tax, either as students, teachers, counselors, or course developers.

The curriculum contains over 360 formal learning courses, including both live and Web-based programs. Course requirements vary according to the level and area of each professional and instructors are both university professors and senior Ernst & Young tax executives.

EYU-Tax requires a professional to obtain a minimum number of hours of client experience for experiential development needs. Counselors in the program also oversee participants' long-term learning and development, including client assignments, to ensure that they are acquiring the appropriate skills and experiences out of the program.
