I mean there are tons of way to go to the same goal. Depends on each person. If you already have an accounting degree you could get the transfer for more than 6 lessons. You can work while you are taking those courses. The only advantage for a degree is that Co-op so you can get experience when you study well.
I think besides accounting there are too much to learn, financial, mutual funds, stock market, etc.
Few thoughts, hope this help.
