We brought you word that the CPA Exam would be offered in Japan back in July. New information has just been released that not only will the Exam be offered in Japan, but also in Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates in 2011.
The CPA Exam offered overseas will be the same Exam administered in the US, and yes, it will still be administered in English. But this is the first time in the history of the Exam that it is being offered outside the US (and US jurisdictions). Foreign applicants will still need to register through the State Board of Accountancy in the state where they intend to practice but no longer will they necessarily need to travel to the US just to sit for the Exam.
