The answer depends on several factors, including your aptitude, future goals and of course what type of things you like doing.
Accounting has a different career path compared to Finance.
Accountants are generally focused on functional financial needs of a business such as Accounts payable, accounts receivable, audits etc. While finance encompass a larger, more macro view of business cash flow such as budgets, expense management and revenue generation.

Let me know if you would like to discuss this in more details.

Finance is more statistical and usually pays more than accounting. Accounting is good for auditing. However, both drown you in numbers so it really depends on your wants and desires.
