Difficult to answer the question but think about what would be your dream first job? Based on your career aspirations you can decide which majors to consider. Lot of people from different disciplines transition into marketing if that is what you want to do. Finance with any of the those two options are good.
All the best
I would advise to go for it instead of Finance and marketing.
Finance/Economics leans more towards money management and careers in the Finance/Treasury areas. Finance/Marketing can potentially lead to a broader set of opportunities. However, this should not limit your career choices and your main goal should be to excel in college and get your degree. Don't be afraid to make a different career choice from your field of study if you find you have a passion for it. Yo u will be a better employee if you like/love what you are doing vs doing something that is not enjoyable.
I wish you the best in college and professional career!
All these majors are great in terms of salary, employment, and growth potential, you should do a thorough analysis of your skills and passion to determine which one suits you the best.
But to supplement all the other answers, here's something that you can do before picking a major. You can check out your school's website and find all the required classes for each specific major. Since all these majors are in the business field, there should be a lot of overlaps. So before you make up your mind to pursue a certain major, you can complete all these common classes first.
Hope that's helpful!
Great question and glad to see that you have a good idea of how you want to shape your career! I've been in corporate finance for about 6 years now, primarily in FP&A where we focus on supporting the company in the planning process. In what I do, having a marketing view of the business is actually very beneficial, and we rely heavily on insights from the marketing team to build our forward looking plans.
Because I work for a consumer oriented company, business activity is heavily influenced by marketing decisions - pricing, discounts, how much to spend in advertising, customer segmentation, etc. We incorporate all of these factors and translate that into financial impacts to our bottom line. So, from my perspective, having a very solid background in finance coupled with a good understanding of marketing is a very good combination and will provide you with a unique skill set that can bring a lot value when you are applying for jobs.
Best of luck to you in your career journey!
I can give you my perspective from a Finance point of view.
Quick background: I hold an undergraduate and graduate degree in Finance (even Economics - I know that it requires a rigorous maths background but finance is "mathier" than Economics)
If you want to get into the field of finance, I would HIGHLY recommend you to perfect your mathematical knowledge. Honestly speaking, you need to be very good at it. You will be exposed to very complex models that may require a robust mathematical background.
In fact, most of the finance PhD hold a degree in mathematics, physics or engineering. You should know that finance is more than Valuation and Corporate Finance.
To excel in Finance, you need to have a robust understand for Calculus 1, 2 and 3, Linear Algebra, Partial Differentiation, Probability Theory and Fundamental of Statistics at least. When you hold this know-how, you will be able to dig into the interesting world of finance: Quantitative Finance, Structured Finance, Econometrics etc.
Just look up on google for: Black-Scholes Model and you will understand the extent of maths involved.
