The Requirements for Becoming a CPA or CMA and CIA Go to the websites of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants for Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) at www.aicpa.org, the Institute of Certified Management Accountants for Certified Management Accountants (CMAs) at www.imanet.org, and the Institute of Internal Auditors for Certified Internal Auditors (CIAs) at www.theiia.org.
Browse through the sites and find information related to the requirements for becoming certified in these areas of accounting expertise and becoming a CPA, CMA, and CIA.
After you visit those websites and view the 2 additional files, you need to answer the following questions in the essay:
- Compare the different requirements of the programs and indicate the program that is most interesting to you and the one least interesting to you.
