Finance VS Management: Best major for future entrepreneur?

As of lately, I've been very confused in terms of which major would benefit me more with my dreams of becoming an entrepreneur (particularly in the nightlife, real estate, and trucking industries). I want to double major in Communications, but I have to decide which type of business degree would be best suited for me. I hear Finance is more involved with numbers, analyzing, and statistics... Which could be beneficial for me in terms of acquiring the ability to help me decide what would be better investments for my business's. Yet, on the other hand, I heard Business Management kind of teaches you the generalization of business as a whole, not really anything specific. I heard though that Management is mostly for people that go on to work as managers and such at places like Target, which I have no desire to do. Plus, I rather study and be good at one thing specific, as if I were to study Finance, as opposed to going into Management, studying all things related to business, but taking away from it mediocre lessons since I did not spend my time focusing on one thing in particular and mastering it... But I don't know. Which major do you guys think would help me out more?

    I don't know about for entrepreneurs but finance is considered a better paying major then general business. Not too long ago I read an article (sorry, don't remember the name) that showed people who major in a specific field like finance did much better than those with just a general business major. It seems to me that if you're going to combine it with communications, you'll be covering the important points, knowing the numbers and how to let people know.

    I would go with Finance. Business management has become a joke.

    Accounting is the best choice in my opinion.
