    Accounting Degree

    Hi all! So I am starting an Accounting degree this year with csu and want to do a joint study. Which joint study would be most beneficial for a career after graduation? My ultimate goal is forensic accounting but I just want to know which out of the following is more employable.
    - Finance
    - Financial Planning
    - Human Resource Management
    - Marketing
    - Organisation Communication & PR
    - Sociology

    Finance would probably be "most beneficial" if you are planning to go down the accounting route.

    Finance is most common as it has some natural synergies but on the other hand, it's become a bit too common. I'd challenge status quo and wonder if one of the other disciplines like sociology may potentially be more relevant to forensic accounting and be a point of differentiation.
