As one of the most prominent and respected professional credentials in the field of accounting, the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation remains a critical test of skills for the most adept accountants.

Over time, the roles and responsibilities of a CPA have evolved to require additional competencies in areas such as analysis, auditing and tax. To account for this change, the 2024 CPA Exam has been revised and will require candidates to choose one of three discipline areas in which to demonstrate greater knowledge and specialize.

Graduate certificates were specifically designed by Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) to correspond with each of those disciplines and provide students with additional preparation for the exam’s redesign. Though not required, you may pursue one of these certificates and an online MS in Accounting at the same time to earn both for 36 credits or less — saving you both time and money. Additionally, the coupling may satisfy the 150 credit hours required for CPA Exam eligibility in most states.
