Pretty easy, overall.
Regardless of the reason for your degree or pursuit; Accounting IS the language of business. I am an older student, with many years of business in Sales and Marketing to my history. The basic understanding of Accounting would have served to my advancements during that time. I am, as an Entrepreneur grateful for the course and the basic building blocks in Accounting. Warren Buffett is quoted for the benefits of understanding Accounting practices (again, regardless!)
The basis for Accounting Equation A = L O E, gives you the insight of strength of your business and the importance of cash flow. I have also learned the reason for redundancy in Accounting (no more 'bad attitude'.)

Advice for students:
GO FOR IT! Having the basic background for Accounting will and does serve a person in all business walks of life. You will find yourself an asset to your organization or your own business by having a working knowledge of Accounting practices.
