The Growing Demand for CPAs

December 8 | 6 pm | Register

The AICPA recently reported two crucial facts: 75% of current CPAs are expected to retire in the next15 years; and the number of students taking the CPA exam is declining. Such supply and demand issues make it a critical time for the profession and a time of opportunity for current accounting students.

Nerissa Brown, associate professor of accounting; Joshua Herbold, teaching associate professor of accounting; Frank Nekrasz, clinical assistant professor of accounting; and Susan Pachera, clinical assistant professor of accounting, bring their expertise in industry and accounting education to a discussion about these issues of supply and demand, the benefits of CPA certification, recent changes designed to keep the CPA exam relevant for the future, and how the Gies Master of Accounting Science prepares future CPAs.
