Isn't 'more and more' redundant?

That is a good point. But we need "such...as" construction with present form of "major"

Only B seems to have that type of construction.

becoming more successful is preferred over being inceasingly successful

The former emphasizes the trend in the modern job market.

B

(A) majoring in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming increasingly
- implies that there are furthermore specialized areas within finance and marketing. Also, "like" indicates that f and m are not the focus and that some other subjects similar to f and m are under focus here.

(B) who major in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are becoming more and more
-even though awkward, conveys the correct meaning.
(C) who majored in specialized areas such as those of finance and marketing are being increasingly
- "being successful" seems to change the meaning from "becoming successful"

(D) who major in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming more and more
- wordy, "like" usage

(E) having majored in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are being increasingly
-" being successful" as in C.
