Corporate Finance is a must for accountants,
Is it US GAAP you want to study or other systems like UK one or any others. it really depends on the system you want to study.

just clarify then i will put the list of books.

A masters in accounting is not as valuable as you think. For the most part, a Macc is an overpriced CPA review course. It makes sense if you have an undergrad in a business-related area and want to work in public accounting.
IMO, the best route is business admin. undergrad -> pass cpa ->get audit experience -> get an MBA from a good school.

An MBT/MST is a different story.
