Dear Abbey, I am so happy that you have chosen a wonderful university to attend in the fall. The decision to major in Accounting or Finance does not have to be made just yet.

Within these areas there are tons of other specializations such as: tax, audit, internal accounting, payroll, advisory, planning, management, etc. () Finance majors According to the Occupational Outlook
