Sripal Jain, CPA, CA – 2023 40 Under 40 Honoree

Co-Founder / Managing Director
Simandhar Education

Career Highlights
In the past year, I achieved significant milestones in the field of education and professional development. I was honored to be selected as a speaker for data analytics at AICPA Engage in Las Vegas, representing India as the sole participant. My institution, dedicated to training CPA students, celebrated two CPA Elijah winners, contributing to a total of five winners from India.

Our institution successfully placed over 1000 students in various CPA firms in India and the US, covering roles in audit, tax, and advisory. The launch of our E-commerce website, Learning Management System, and a user-friendly app streamlined course access for over 20,000 students enrolled in CPA, EA, and CMA programs. Additionally, my role as an author for US CMA course material with Becker Professional Education and a speaker for Thriveal CPA Alliance firm in North Carolina on helping CPA firm owners grow further enriched my professional journey.

What are you doing to make a difference in the profession, your community, the world?
Beyond our firm, I’m actively engaged in mentoring students to pursue the CPA ,EA,CMA course and creating awareness about the Masters STEM program in accounting, offering a 3-year OPT visa in the US. I guide students in securing internships and full-time jobs, aiding them in establishing their own CPA firms in India, encouraging outsourcing work from the US to address the accounting shortage. Additionally, we’re launching practical US Tax and Accounting courses, fostering entrepreneurship. Through initiatives like the 4am club, I aim to instill dedication in students for professional growth while emphasizing the importance of CPA, EA, and CMA qualifications not just for jobs but for entrepreneurial ventures, bridging gaps in the industry.

Current Professional Reading / Listening
I’m currently delving into “Financial Intelligence” by Karen Berman and Joe Knight, a valuable resource that deepens my understanding of financial management and strategic decision-making and ” Education for Character” by Swami Vivekananda for making revolution in Education.

Additionally, I’m staying updated on accounting trends through podcasts like “The Journal of Accountancy” and online forums, ensuring my professional development aligns with the latest insights in the accounting field.
