As business grows more complex, students majoring in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming increasingly successful in the job market.
(A) majoring in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming increasingly
(B) who major in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are becoming more and more
(C) who majored in specialized areas such as those of finance and marketing are being increasingly
(D) who major in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming more and more
(E) having majored in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are being increasingly

I have a specific question. In B, shouldnt it be specialised areas such as instead of " such specialized areas as" ?

For me, both are same. But the question doesnot have that "such as" option. so such specilized areas as ........... is ok.

1. As business grows more complex, students who major in "such specialized areas as" finance and marketing are becoming more and more successful in the job market.
2. As business grows more complex, students who major in specialized areas "such as" finance and marketing are becoming more and more successful in the job market.

i do not see any difference between them.

In fact here in this example rest of the options are wrong !!
only B is the best
again in B such as Vs such spl areas as are one and the same !!!
does not make much difference

like those of is wrong
are being
having becoming

the above constructs are all awkward constructs in GMAT land and are wrong hence can be straight away eliminated
