Licensure and Certifications

PBA’s Master of Accountancy program prepares graduates to become a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA). For CPA licensure you must meet the education, examination, and experience requirements in the jurisdiction in which they plan to work. All CPA candidates must pass the Uniform CPA Examination ® (CPA Exam), which comprises four sections: Auditing and Attestation (AUD), Business Environment and Concepts (BEC), Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), and Regulation (REG). While the CPA Exam is the same for all candidates, other requirements may differ by jurisdiction. Students should check with their specific Board of Accountancy for requirements in their state/jurisdiction. While it is beneficial to earn a Certified Public Accountant license, it is only required for graduates that are working in public accounting, the segment of the profession that reviews and audits the financial statements of public and private entities.
