Just out of curiosity - what motivates international students to apply for a master's of accounting in the United States?

IFRS is already practiced by most of the world, and will be implemented in the U.S. soon, as well. It just seems like pursuing a CPA would be unnecessary, unless you're looking to practice only in the United States.

This isn't meant to confront or offend anyone - honestly, I'm just surprised there are so many international applicants and I'm curious about the rationale behind it.

Sounds good enough for a reason. Besides, it's not like IFRS and US GAAP are apples and oranges. "Debit" still means "debit". I doubt there's any evidence out there that shows having a CPA, as opposed to holding an equivalent certification from a country where IFRS are already the rule, is a serious hindrance to promotion for jobs in international accounting (for lack of a better term), in the US or elsewhere.
