For me it was not very hard because I took on an economics minor while an undergrad. Accounting does not involve difficult math, but it's only a matter of learning the rules and making sure the numbers balance. It is something that I have quickly caught onto. I do enjoy it and the psychological motivation that I am learning something that is very useful in the work force helps a lot.

For me, one thing that I found easy was that I was trained to study historical events stretching from hundreds of years while a history student. It requires a lot of mental endurance to retain that information because history is never-ending. However, accounting is limited and once you have learned the major parts of accounting, that is it and there is no more information required to learn.

I would highly suggest moving to accounting if your goal is to go back to school. It is a lot more useful than an MBA. What I am doing is getting enough accounting classes to take the CPA exam. Once you have a CPA the opportunities are endless.
