Professor Veliotis also has an LLM (taxation) from New York University School of Law, a JD from Fordham University School of Law, and a Bachelors (accounting) from Baruch College (CUNY).
Before coming to UConn in 2003 to start his PhD program, Professor Veliotis worked at law firms on business litigation, corporate and tax matters, and at two of the Big Four CPA firms. In the Big 4, he spent nearly a decade in their New York and Paris offices, specializing in the taxation of international employee compensation, including stock-option plans extended beyond a parent’s home country and expatriate issues. His law and CPA licenses have remained continuously active.

At Fordham University, Professor Veliotis is involved in various committees, including serving a three year rotation on the University’s Institutional Review Board.
