That really depends on what position want you to be, what industry, you will get strong arguements for both.

first, if you get an MBA, in Finance or Accounting, its pretty much the same. Finance, (which I have) is more general towards financial issues and will not emphasise accounting, though there are several accounting courses.When employers see you have an MBA, they may ask your emphasis, but the line between Finance and Accounting is a fine one, and there is not that much difference.

everyone is correct in saying that there is a very fine line. but without knowing any more specifics, i think finance is slightly better than accounting in a "EE (electrical engineering) is better than ME (mechanical engineering) is better than CE (civil engineering)" kind of way.

if the company needs to hire someone who knows accounting, they will hire a CPA or CFA, not an MBA. if the company needs to hire a CFO to be an executive, they will probably hire an MBA with finance or accounting (doesn't really matter).
