My path has been the science route, until I did my MBA. As with other programs - Associate degree, Bachelor degree, or other certifications-- there is a base set of courses to take and then specialty courses to support your career field.

Accounting courses were more aligned to the specific presentation and tracking of finances and budgets, as well as the presentation of a company's wealth over time. There was a lot of work with spreadsheets!
