In order to get SOCPA you must take entrance exam which contain five subjects in finance accounting, auditing, business law, tax and Islamic role in business. I have taken this exam before I came to the USA and I passed it. From my experience student who are going to work in Saudi Arabia should be certification from SOCPA. My next step to get CPA from American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to be more qualified when I go back to my country.

I agree with the author about the benefits that he tells us about in this article but I prefer as a accountant external jobs for these two reasons. One reason is the independence, which the internal auditor cannot get enough ,but the external can get a lot because of the professional role. The other reason is the salary as the external auditor can get a higher one than the internal especilly in my country.
