I’m trying to decide which of these two majors would be a better major, I’ve looked into universities with both of these and I’m just stuck, which would be better in the long run to move up in a company? Which has a higher reputation and paycheck? Any comments would be helpful.

    They are both good choices for a major -- finding the right fit for your interests and aptitudes is important. IMO as a HS student (per your other post) there is no reason and not benefit to choosing you major now. You will get so much more information once you start college that will prepare you to make a much more informed decision. These are reasons to wait:

    1) When you start a business program at college you will take introductory courses in a number of business subjects including (but not limited to) finance, MIS, and accounting. As you take these classes you should get a better sense of what each major would entail, how much you like it, how well you did in each class etc.

    2) You should also make an effort to get to know professors so you can ask any question you have about the major, typical jobs available when graduating with that major. long term job prospects etc.

    3) Also once you are at college you can make an appointment and speak to someone at career placement to get a sense of what types of jobs people with these different majors can get.
