The CPA (Certified Practising Accountant) designation is recognised throughout the world and denotes a combination of strategic business skill and leadership as well as technical rigour. It represents soundness in depth, breadth and quality of knowledge in accounting and finance. The CPA Program is a rigorous, educational and experienced program, comprising education segments and integrated workplace learning.
