In undergrad I majored in Accounting and minored in Mass Communication. I chose to minor in Mass Communication because I wanted to work with the Entertainment Industry as a tax accountant, and because I found the courses interesting. Aside from some overlapping concepts in Marketing and Advertising, the two had very little in common. I liked the diversity and, while accounting is directly related to my position at PwC, I really enjoyed most of my Mass Communication classes. Since I work with some Entertainment company clients, understanding how their business works has been a bit helpful even and I wouldn't have that understanding without my Mass Communication minor. It was also nice learning new and different skills in those classes that I never would have learned in a business class. I appreciated the change of pace, and many of the classes were fun.
However, I've often met people who majored in Accounting and minored in Finance. At my college the two courses overlapped a lot so it was much easier for them to meet both requirements. I'd consider what you are interested in, and definitely look into how many extra courses you'd have to take to earn the Minor. By considering both you should be able to make an informed decision.
