A. what a mess... "have been becoming"... ouch... never use that tense... also incorrect use of "like" see in answer D!

B. correct "who" reference and correct use of "SUCH AS" meaning "for example"

C. "such as those of finance and marketing" is redundant

D. like is used in meaning of "for instance" and not as a comparison of those to subjects, therefore incorrect.

E. "having majored" is awkward... what about those students who are majoring now? also "WHO" is preferred to refer to students

OG questions
to list examples, it's better to use " such as" or "such....as....." instead of "like". For this reason, B, C and E stand.
C is wrong for the past tense " majored" . We need present tense to describe a fact up to present.
" having majored" and "are being" in E are not suitable. We use "be being" in passion voice.

B is the best.

In B, isn't "more and more" redundant?

In C, the referent of those is areas.
(who majored in specialized areas such as those of finance and marketing) => majored in areas of finance and marketing

And logically, students who already majored that field are becoming successful. The situation cannot be coherent. Hence, my guess is C.

Any reputation is welcome.

Isnt C wrong because you have such as those of finance and marketing.
It should be such as finance and marketing

Any think otherwise?

yeah I thought it is better to use "increasingly" rather than "more and more"
