The value of the CPA® designation

Fast growing profession

In fact, CPAs are witnessing incredible growth in demand. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of accountants and auditors (especially those with a CPA) is expected to grow faster through 2018 than for all other occupations. Continuing demand means there’s never been a better time to be a CPA - it’s the profession that offers career stability, excellent compensation, increased mobility, and career growth opportunities all in one.

Increase your career prospects

The job market is increasingly competitive and in times of a downturn even more so. But the CPA is one way to increase your job opportunities and have a recession-proof credential. Not only is the profession growing in terms of openings, but most employers will always pick a CPA over a non CPA for the same position.

Boost your earning power

CPAs bring in more money and more opportunity! Not only are you more in demand as a CPA, you’re also in line for higher earnings. According to the AICPA, CPAs earn 10-15% more than non-CPAs working in accounting-related jobs. Or you can look at it this way, a CPA has the potential to boost their earnings by $1 million over their lifetime compared to a non CPA in the same position.

Mobility across industries

If you think being a CPA means you will be stuck in an accountancy firm, think again. With a CPA you can work in a vast range of industries, because every business needs an accountant. The options are limitless..

Earn respect from your peers

Just like the letters PhD or MD inspire respect, so the CPA singles you out as a trusted member of the business community with prestigious credentials.

Be one of an exclusive community

When you earn your CPA you become a member of an exclusive worldwide community. The numbers are 1.3 million and growing – and you could be one of them.
