Dreams do come true!
Finance & Accounting candidates can now study and work in the USA on OPT and gain work experience. Simandhar is reinventing the global accounting revolution. Do you know, How?
Master's in Finance/Accounting courses are usually categorised as non-STEM courses and offer only a one-year work permit. However, Simandhar has collaborated with US university partners that have incorporated Business Analytics into its Master's in Finance/Accounting programs, which have now been classified as STEM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). As a result, graduates of these programs from Simandhar are now eligible for a three-year work permit (OPT). This in turn creates a large talent pool of US CPAs which will then take care of the main problem statement of the acute shortage of accountants. (As per the 2021 AICPA report).

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ's)
It's a secured way for Indian CPAs to work in the US for up to 3 years. How is this possible? Let's provide some context before answering that question. Historically, engineers from India were able to work in the US by completing their undergraduate studies in India, followed by pursuing a STEM-certified Master's degree program in the US, which granted them a 3-year OPT permit to work in the US. However, F&A professionals did not have this same option until now. Simandhar has collaborated with US university partners to incorporate Business Analytics into their Master's programs in Accounting/Finance, resulting in STEM certification. As a result, Simandhar alumni who enroll in these courses are now eligible for the same 3-year work permits as engineers! This is the Simandhar US Pathway, offering a chance for CPA alumni to realise their American dreams.
The mere asking of this question indicates how much enjoyment techies are experiencing in the US. STEM represents a clandestine organization of heroes, brought together by their passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. They employ their abilities to solve the world's most difficult challenges, innovate new technologies, and shape our future. Historically, only Indian engineers were reaping the advantages of STEM, which abbreviates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Nevertheless, Simandhar has collaborated with US universities to create the CPA + MAcc program, enabling finance and accounting professionals to obtain the same benefits.
Programs in the USA, known as STEM, such as MS in Finance and MS in Accounting, aim to establish a solid foundation for students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These programs equip students with the skills required for several career paths, including CPA and MAcc. Typically, a Master's degree program requires completion of 30 credits.
Are the knowledge, connections, experiences, and personal growth you gain during your journey not sufficient? Of course, we're joking. The potential earnings for 3 years and scope for CPA jobs abroad can amount to over $200,000*
At Simandhar, we offer job assistance to students who have completed both the MAcc program and the US CPA. Obtaining a CPA is just as crucial for securing a job as breathing is for survival. With the Simandhar Pathway, you can work smarter, not harder, and enjoy numerous advantages such as cost, time, and energy savings. By completing this dual-degree pathway, you can unlock infinite opportunities that come with earning a US CPA.
Simandhar places great emphasis on the aspect of 'working abroad' as we not only prioritize the opportunity to study abroad but also place emphasis on the potential for graduates to secure employment. Our focus is on highlighting the benefits of obtaining a US CPA, which opens up numerous employment opportunities.
There are countless reasons why you should consider going to the US, such as achieving financial stability, expanding your career prospects, exploring global opportunities, surpassing Sharmaji's son, impressing your parents, fulfilling your dream of living the Great American Dream, and impressing your crush. With so many benefits, the question becomes,
Yes, upon obtaining your CPA and Master's degree, even as a fresh graduate, you can earn a yearly salary of $60,000+* in the US, which translates to over 50 lakhs+.
There is no age restriction for applying to this program or obtaining a US visa. However, you must meet all other eligibility requirements. If you are a recent graduate, have a clean criminal record, possess the ability to comprehend human reasoning and logic, and have the necessary financial resources, we welcome you to enroll in our program, regardless of your age.
Certainly, you can bring your family with you to the United States! In fact, while you are pursuing your Master's degree, your spouse can also take advantage of this opportunity to enroll in a program of their own. It's like a family vacation, but with the added benefit of education.
Yes, you can definitely pursue MAcc after completing CA. However, it's important to keep in mind that having MAcc without CPA is like having an airplane without fuel. To fully benefit and soar to the US, you'll need to obtain your US CPA along with your MAcc. The good news is that the CA curriculum overlaps with CPA by 70%, so completing both should be a breeze.
It's rare to find someone who hasn't done their CPA from Simandhar, as over 80% of CPA alumni in India have trained with us. However, given the high demand for Certified Public Accountants in the global economy, we may need to make an exception for you if you haven't trained with us.
Simandhar highly recommends passing at least one exam in India before commencing your MAcc program in the US. This not only gives you a sense of achievement but also enables you to dedicate more time towards enhancing your career opportunities post-CPA in the USA.
