"A CPA Qualification makes it feasible to travel and develop a successful career in other countries, such as Australia"
"CPA is a fantastic qualification which opens up so many opportunities within a multitude of business sectors whether it be Practice, SME’s, Multinational and Shared Services as well as the qualification being internationally recognised. The qualification spans all aspects of business be it financial, commercial, management accountancy, tax or advisory/legal areas. CPA’s knowledge base covers a multitude, which can be applied in both business and personal situations."
"Once I completed my Accounting degree in CIT it was always my goal to get my qualifying exams completed as quickly as possible. Being allowed to complete two qualifying P1 exams while studying for my masters along with the two exam sittings each year was a major factor in choosing the CPA Qualification. The fact that a CPA Qualification is globally recognised and you don’t have to commit to a tree and a half year training contract with an Employer were other reasons for going down the CPA route."
- Maurice O’Brien, Part Qualified Accountant, Paul O’Donovan and Associates
"I chose CPA because it is internationally recognised and the career opportunities are vast, I have really enjoyed my time working and training as a CPA trainee accountant and I look forward to what’s to come in the future."
