This website will walk you through the basics of accounting, which are fairly universal even if you're not in the U.S.

https://accountinginfocus.com/

The person who created the site teaches both undergrad and graduate courses in accounting, is a CPA, and has a Masters in Accounting and Taxation.

I have one more question .

An MBA in finance probably won't teach you a whole lot about Accounting, but a Masters in Accounting would expand upon what you know. I personally have a Masters in Accounting and Taxation.

Rather than a Masters in Accounting, I suggest an MBA or a Masters in Taxation. I would only suggest a Masters in Accounting to someone who is planning on going into research afterwards (e.g., planning on getting a phd in Accounting or Business Administration) or who has a job lined up working for a larger company. By larger, I generally mean a publicly traded company that will be grossing over a hundred million a year.

If you really want to learn, work in public accounting for 3-7 years. It's a good idea for any accountant to spend some time doing that as opposed to working for a single company where you won't learn nearly as much. After a few years working in public accounting, private companies will be a lot more interested in hiring you.
