Certified Public Accountant (CPA) – Only professionals with this credential are able to file reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Every state uses the American Institute of Certified Public Accountant’s (AICPA) 4-part Uniform CPA Examination, but each state has different eligibility criteria so check with your state before beginning a degree program to make sure it will meet the educational requirements. Because a larger number of college credits than what is required for most bachelor's degrees is required for exam eligibility, Students might consider continuing in the MBA program to fulfill the educational requirements. Also, most jurisdictions also require several years experience working in accounting to be eligible to take the CPA exam.
