Default What to major in my degree?

I plan to do a degree in business and wish to work
for a game publishe such as THQ or Sega ect.

What would you recommend I major or even minor in to be best suited to being the guy able to work his way up, negoiate with developers ect ect.

Choices generally are Marketing, Mangement, Finance, Economics, Accounting, Banking, Analysis and more of similar.

Note I can choose up to three: one major and two minors.

Thanks for any suggestions.

You're saying you want to be a producer and move up from there to being an executive. Therefore take any of these that you want: Marketing, Mangement, Finance, Analysis, Economics

And not bother with these:
Accounting, Banking,

Your top major should ideally be Management, your top minor should be Marketing.
Analysis is important in online games (virtual worlds).

Thanks Tom, that's what I assumed correct but I suppose I was looking for a second opinion as such.

Thanks again,
Ryan.
