CPA Review with virtual reality?

Universal CPA Review is using virtual reality to teach complex accounting and auditing topics to students sitting for the CPA exam and majoring in accounting.

The CPA exam is full of complex and difficult topics that students must learn to apply for the exam. However, if they haven’t performed this task in their day job, then how can they learn the application of these topics?

Beginning in 2019, Universal CPA Review started developing courses that use virtual reality for complex topics like performing a physical inventory account, recording adjusting journal entries in the financial close process, and identifying cybersecurity risks in an organizations IT environment.

While these courses are still in development and have not been released, the management team at Universal CPA Review expects these courses (along with other complex topics) will be rolled out in time for the CPA evolution. To learn more, email the Universal CPA team at [email protected]
