Feliciano Students Field Test CPA Exam

Accounting & Finance Department

Feliciano School of Business students put the CPA to the test for a second straight year. 

This year more than 30 seniors participated in field-testing of CPA exam content thanks to a partnership between Montclair State University and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). Additionally, five juniors spent more than an hour taking an exam while discussing it with three AICPA staff members as part of the AICPA psychometrics studies.

The AICPA is responsible for developing CPA exam content and publishes a 39-page outline of the content annually. The material covers United States and International accounting, Government and Not-For-Profit accounting, Auditing, Tax, Business Law, Information Systems and Communications, Finance, Economics, Operations Research, Statistics, Corporate Governance and Ethics.

The CPA exam, although U.S.-focused, is a worldwide exam and is administered outside the United States, including countries such as Brazil, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates.
