Ideally, you would do both.

To summarise, if you have anything to do with product development or product management, then the Certified Scrum Product Owner course would be a great fit for you.

If you are interested in learning how Scrum works and how the Scrum framework enables teams to solve complex problems and create innovative new products and services, then the Certified Scrum Master course is a great fit for you.

One course teaches you how to become a Scrum Master whilst the other teaches you how to become a Product Owner within a scrum team.
