New Model for Licensure, New CPA Exam Expected to Launch 2024
The CPA Evolution initiative is transforming the CPA licensure model to recognize the rapidly changing skills and competencies the practice of accounting requires today and will require in the future. It is a joint effort of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
The Curriculum was developed by the CPA Evolution Model Curriculum Task Forces, a group of more than 40 volunteers from across the profession, including faculty from small colleges to large universities, CPAs in public practice as well as business and industry, and representatives from State Boards of Accountancy. The Curriculum reflects the skills newly licensed CPAs need in the current practice environment and serves as a model of how an accounting program could transition to prepare CPA candidates for the Core + Disciplines CPA Exam structure that will test those skills starting in 2024.
