Both the subjects you have mentioned come under commerce. And we know that commerce sectors are involved with higher income. There are Masters in Science & Masters in Business Administration in marketing and finance. But I guess it really depends on your interests. I would recommend an MS course just in case to be more stable and secure. Compared to the other option, it is affordable as well.

So for subject related queries, I think both marketing and finance are really good options. But as it is obvious, they are different in many ways. First, if you are really stuck on job opportunities I would say it is marketing. The reason is not just because marketing has more jobs in the industry. The reason is its area of work. The marketing sector has more entry-level and mid-range jobs. This is because every company somehow uses marketing tools. And due to development, it only increases.

But in the Finance sector, the jobs are stable and diverse. Like the best jobs in finance are lucrative and high-end. Whereas in marketing it keeps changing. Financial jobs like bankers, investors, advisors are more stable. These jobs require keen analytical skills too. And that comes with experience. So if you are more comfortable with a wider range and a whole level of experience, marketing is better. Finance is for those who want to take risks and aim for higher professions.

Job opportunities can be specific to location. I mean, of course in a populated area, marketing jobs are more effective. But in a prosperous location where new developments are possible, jobs in finance will be greater. 

I know it can be a bit difficult to figure out which course will work best in your favour. To ease this out, you can directly get in touch with experts for FREE and I'm sure they will guide you through everything and help you pick the perfect course. 

Hope this helps!
