  • Answer: Well in accounting they study the same amount and types of math as in finance but a master of accounting is specifically for accounting. You can use an accounting degree to enter finance and you will see a similar pay, how ever it is not the other way around. But with a specific degree in finance you have basically exact salaries but better chances of adcancing in the company. With both a master of accounting and finace degree imagine th huge salary, because with both degree position as a CPA, CFP, CFA, investment banker, money manager, and many other jobs will be perfect. Finance is more focus on money management but accounting looks at this and a lot more stuff. A masters in accounting is just in accounting and a master of accounting and finance is a masters in both. If you were originally majoring in accounting then finance is just a few more classes. Jobs such as investment bankers work crutal hours in a week, and money manager is competitive but managable hours with millions. There are other ways to make seven figures in finance but those two were the highest paid jobs. With an accounting degree if you make it to partner at a regular firm you will have nice hours and a 150k+ salary. At the big four accounting firms spread world wide like most firms their is more than one partner but their top make slaries range d from $200,000 to $3,000,000. My advise is to mager in both to find the highest paying nice hour careers their is.
