The answer will entirely depend on your career aspirations, interests and skill sets.

Accounting and Finance will lead to more quantitative positions while marketing will be more qualitative. To be successful in these different career paths it will, therefore, require substantially different skill sets. You should consider your strengths as well as your goals and align them the best you can. Speaking with professionals in each of these fields to learn more about "a-day-in-the-life" and find out what interests you most would likely be very beneficial.

First, why did you chose accounting as your major? If the decision was meaningful, don't be discouraged so easily. Finance is similar but not full auditing focus with tilt toward investment analysis while marketing is in a different direction altogether. Marketing is focused on building brand image, customer relations, consumer behavior, market research and building relationships. I was a marketing major and if you are outgoing, not afraid to talk to random strangers and enjoy being around people then this major may suit you.

Good luck.
