Certified Public Accountant (CPA-USA)
Why an Indian student should do a CPA USA certification?
Although this certification is one of the requirements towards acquiring a practicing license as a Certified Public Accountant in any of the selected state of the United States of America, Indian students who do not intend to relocate to America can also can benefit from merely passing the exam and not proceeding with the licensing part. There are many opportunities for professionals with CPA certification in Indian cities too as many US based MNCs of India prefer to employ such professionals. They tend to look for accountants familiar with US GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). Moreover, CPA USA is a synonym for standard of competence in the financial accounting and auditing field and is considered equivalent to Indian Chartered Accountant. In addition, remuneration for CPA professionals is always much higher compared to non-CPA accounting professionals.
