My belief is each University defines their Accounting major differently. My University only offered a Bachelor's in Business Administration with Emphasis in Accounting but I was strictly an accounting major. I am unsure how other university programs work but my program required me to take a couple of mandatory classes and then select electives in accounting that I was interested in. Either degree will allow you to start a career in accounting if that is what you are interested in. My suggestion would to research the programs you are interested in and read their course curriculum to see what program you like the best.
