Reasons for not choosing A

1)To introduce example use "such as" instead of "like". "areas like those of
finance and marketing" Totally wrong use of like here.

2)"Those of finance".What does those represent for?

3)Finally the tense which "are becoming" is far more appropriate than "have been becoming".Its less wordy and succinct in meaning and tense continuity.

Use "such as" for examples and "those of finance" is used incorrectly.

Cheers!

A) majoring in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been
becoming increasingly
like-incorrect use in quoting examples(such as should be used)
B) who major in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are becoming
more and more
(who clearly modifies students;examples are quoted using "such as"is correct)
C) who majored in specialized areas such as those of finance and marketing are
being increasingly
majored-past tense;the author intent is to present something in present-incorrect
D) who major in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been
becoming more and more
like-incorrect
E) having majored in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are being
awkward and wordy.
