        Look answer this simple question: How are your Japanese Language skills?
        Please answer honestly, once we know then we can talk about out of the three which will have the most jobs available! You wish to work for a Japanese company, the language skills play a big part, you wish to teach English then you do not need Japanese language skills and a degree in Basket Weaving will do! Very simple !

            Wasn't you last post that you 'wanted to learn 6 languages' ?
            Generally speaking, Japanese companies need to pay taxes, report earnings, etc. based on Japanese accounting standards. (These are getting closer to IFSR, i.e. the Eurpean Standard and not the US Standard.) So if you have a CPA certificate both from the US (or EU) and from Japan a lot of companies would line up to hire you.

              What is your long term ambition – say in 10 years?

              President of your own company? Then do a double major and all of your case studies on the industry that you are targeting.

              Division chief of a medium sized company? Then either marketing or business and do all of your case studies in c

              Section chief? Then pick the major that interests you most.

              Note that none of these answer your question directly – since your major should be selected with your non-financial objectives in mind.
