Both are great career paths! Depending on your school and course load, you could consider a double major in both fields. If you had to choose one, I would recommend a major in Finance. Finance is a field that gives you a solid understanding of a business and several successful business professionals I know have started on this track. A framework in Finance can provide a solid foundation for your career, regardless of the path you take. Since you also have an interest in Risk Management, I would encourage you to take a few courses focused on this. Having at least a few courses in Risk Management will help build your knowledge and skillset and potentially make you a more desirable candidate for both fields.
Best of luck with your degree and career!
