Progress Made on Name for Global Credential


In early October the AICPA board of directors approved a recommended name for the proposed global credential, saying those who earn it should have the right to use the initials IISBP (International Institute of Strategic Business Professionals) after their names.

At press time, the AICPA Council planned to discuss the recommendation at its fall meeting in late October.
