I think time invested into studying real analysis pays off because then you can later study measure theory, functional analysis and more advanced probability to deal with curse of dimensionality and whatnot.

edit: I started studying the book linked above starting from chapter 4 since the first 3 chapters are familiar from discrete math. Then did chapter 5, skimmed chapters 6(little linear algebra), 7, 8 (most "transition to higher math" books contain this stuff) and am currently in chapter 9.
