In 2011, the Uniform CPA Examination will be offered outside the 55 U.S. jurisdictions for the first time in its history. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), and Prometric – the three organizations that jointly offer the CPA exam in the United States – reached an agreement to administer the exam in international locations. The CPA exam will be offered next year in Japan, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates.
