Why should I get a CPA license over a different accounting certification?

Although becoming a CPA is a difficult process, it is worth the effort. Earning a CPA license demonstrates a commitment to the profession and often highlights potential candidates for leadership and management positions.

Due to a shortage in experienced accounting professionals in business, CPAs are in high demand. The main reason for this shortage is due to a dip in accounting students in the 1990’s when the Internet was booming and students sought jobs in IT and online marketing. The Sarbanes-Oxley act, passed in 2002, increased the need for qualified CPAs to enforce the new higher standards of public corporate accounting.

CPAs can earn between 5% and 15% more than their non-credentialed counterparts.
