Learn about an innovative pilot program in New Jersey that could expand the pool of accounting students and CPAs.
The number of U.S. students who completed a bachelor’s degree has slumped. Fewer students are also sitting to become a CPA.
Some believe the 150-hour education requirement discourages students from majoring in accounting and is a significant barrier for newly minted accounting graduates. While there are no quick solutions to this very complicated problem, an innovative pilot program in New Jersey is being described as a “game changer” that could expand the pool of people who would consider the CPA career path.
Join NJCPA Vice President of Government Relations Jeff Kaszerman for a discussion with New Jersey State Board of Accountancy member Dan Geltrude, CPA, and Assistant Professor and CPA Advisor at Saint Peter’s University, Brigid D'Souza, CPA, about the alternative path to the 150 credits needed to be eligible for a CPA license being tested in New Jersey, also known as the “Work for Credit” program.
If you can’t attend the live broadcast, the recording will be available shortly afterwards at njcpa.org/issueswatch.
NOTE: There is no CPE credit for this broadcast.
