Graduate CPA Preparation Certificate

If you've earned your Bachelor's degree in Accounting or Business Administration degree with an Accounting focus, Keller's Graduate Certificate in CPA Preparation is an educational option that builds on your previous accounting coursework, while preparing you to reach the next level in your professional career. This unique 30 credit hour program addresses "in-demand" advanced accounting competencies and specialties such as International Accounting, Ethics and Forensic Accounting, Taxation, and Accounting and Information Systems.

Our CPA Preparation Graduate Certificate curriculum can put you at a unique advantage because it integrates Becker Professional Education's proven CPA Exam Review. Students who prepare with Becker pass the CPA Exam at double the rate of non-Becker candidates.1 There are two tracks for earning this Graduate Certificate, both of which include Becker's proven CPA exam learning approach: Advanced Accounting and Professional Leadership. See the advanced accounting track courses for additional details.

For over 50 years, Becker has been the leader in CPA review preparing over 400,000 candidates for the CPA Exam. And because Becker's proven exam review is infused into Keller's CPA preparation courses, you can prepare for the CPA Exam and earn your graduate certificate simultaneously, helping you save time and tuition. Additionally, you can earn academic credits that may help satisfy the sitting and/or licensing requirements in your state. Students must check with their state board of accountancy for eligibility requirements.

A Unique Advantage

Keller's Graduate Certificate in CPA Preparation integrates Becker's CPA Exam Review into its curriculum. Students who prepare with Becker pass the CPA Exam at double the rate of non-Becker candidates.1
