    "Industry" generally refers to working in the in-house finance department of a 'normal' business, so you'll be entirely focussed on the affairs of that business. "Practice" refers to working for an accountancy firm (or potentially a firm specialising in one particular discipline), who then provide their services to a range of 'client' companies.
