if your classmates / alumni knows which one is the real deal, you better try not to shortcut.

Otherwise, No

If you've taken Cacl II/III, Micro/Macro 101 & 201, Stats, Econometrics, and International Econ it shouldn't matter.

You can't do legit financial modeling without understanding accounting. Only thing you can do is calc irr and present value.
