More specifically, we believe expanding subject-matter content to include data analytics, digital acumen and other technology focused content are necessary to keep pace with the rapidly changing business landscape and will continue to enhance audit quality. We also believe that more needs to be done to address the impact of existing CPA licensure requirements – specifically the costs associated with these requirements – on the accessibility of the audit profession, particularly to underserved and underrepresented talent.
