Generally, most Indian B.Com graduates are eligible to take the CPA exams. For non-eligible candidates, Miles CPA Review facilitates a Post Graduate Diploma in Accounting & Finance as a bridge course.
Minimum education requirements for US CPA exams and license:
CPA Exam 120 Credits
CPA License 150 Credits
Every year of university education in India is equivalent to 30 semester credits of US education.
Using 1 year = 30 credits,
B.Com = 3 years x 30 credits = 90 credits
Exception: If B.Com is completed in 1st division from a NAAC A university, the 3-year B.Com would be treated as 4 years of US education, i.e., 120 credits for B.Com alone.
B.Com + M.Com/MBA = 90/120 credits + 60 credits = 150/180 credits
B.Com + CA/CS/CWA = 90/120 credits + 60 credits = 150/180 credits
CA/CS/CWA recognized by few states as 2 years of US education
