    Those three majors are very different. I suggest you take intro courses in each one (probably required as part of the business core curriculum) to see where your interests and aptitudes lie.

    I suggest you make an appointment at career placement to discuss internship possibilities -- opportunities can vary by college as well as by how well you are doing in college.

    Marketing has changed over the past decade. It is now driven by data analysis which often requires higher level math skills. Data analytics & data science are highly sought after skills in today's job market.

    Finance : Best to look over the finance course listings at your current school.

    You should go through course catalogue to determine which classes/which major you find more interesting and which are more of a fit with your personal strengths. Nobody on CC has ever met you.
