The Uniform CPA Examination, which is administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, is used by all states. Additional certifications are provided by the Association of Financial Professionals (certified treasury professional, certified corporate financial planning and analysis professional), CFA Institute (chartered financial analyst) and the Institute of Management Accountants (certified management accountant, certified financial manager).
