Here is a good online article I found comparing finance and accounting degrees. It may give you some more insight and there are links to other related topics. http://www.rasmussen.edu/degrees/business/blog/accounting-vs-finance-which-degree-is-right-for-you/
I remember when I was considering my college major I had similar question. I ended up going with business administration but later when looking for a job in a very competitive market I had some regret for having not gone with finance or accounting. This is primarily based on the fact that many jobs positions I found interesting required either finance or accounting degrees and would not consider a general business administration major. Conversely, any position that accepted a business administration major also considered finance and accounting majors.
Great question. Please let me know if I can offer any additional information for you.
