If you are a bright, ambitious individual who is passionate about business and loves a challenge, the CPA program may just be your key to success.
With more than 190,000 members, CPA is a globally recognized, unified accounting designation that incorporates the best of its predecessors – CGA, CMA, and CA – to create more career opportunities than ever before.
Your academic background will determine where you start on the path to becoming a CPA. The CPA Professional Education Program (PEP) requires an undergraduate degree (in any discipline) along with required prerequisite courses as defined by the subject area coverage.
If you have met all the academic requirements, you may be eligible to enroll into CPA PEP. If you have a recognized degree but do not have the required prerequisites, the CPA Prerequisite Education Program (PREP) may be the best choice to obtain the CPA prerequisites.
