You can get in from just about any major, but Accounting and Finance would be recommended since you learn useful concepts that can be applied to the job in class. Economics/Statistics/Math beyond that, because it will give you a foundation of quantitative ability to speak to.

Thanks for your response. Next question Accounting or Finance?

Why not both? If not, then obviously finance. Wait for others to respond though before making your decision.

Agreed. Do both. Or pick the one you like more - it'll make the work easier.
