In an interview with Dan Hood, Editor-in-Chief of “Accounting Today,” NASBA President and CEO Ken Bishop discussed the importance of CPA Mobility, as well as the international administration of the Uniform CPA Examination.
Bishop praised the success of the CPA Mobility program, mentioning the recent adoption of mobility legislation in California.
“Because it’s happened so rapidly, people have forgotten that five years ago we had three states,” said Bishop. “Mobility is often talked about as being something positive for the profession, but it’s also been very positive for consumers.”
Currently, the CPA Exam is administered in Japan and certain areas in the Middle East and Latin America. Bishop said the process behind expanding international availability of the Exam involves protecting the Exam itself, as well as continuing to ensure the relevancy of the U.S. CPA credential.
