DeVry, Inc. (NYSE:DV) reaffirmed its leadership position in providing local exam preparation support to CPA Exam candidates when the exam is offered internationally in 2011. For the first time, the CPA Exam will be offered outside U.S. jurisdictions. The exam, which is jointly administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and Prometric, will be available in five international locations, including Japan, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates. Becker Professional Education is well-positioned to help all non-U.S. CPA exam candidates take advantage of this change.

In 2011, students in these five countries may take the computer-based CPA exam at testing centers in their home countries.
