I need to make some life changing decisions right now. I finish my bachelors degree in business administration soon and need to specialise myself for my masters. I want to stay in business, but I havent found my "niche" yet. More inside!

Please dont tell me to switch subject areas away from business administration, as I am able to enjoy anything once i'm good at it.
The problem is, i'm not particularly talented in any area of business. This is because until now, i haven't had the guts to bet on one area (be it marketing, controlling, finance or what have you) and instead have been average in all areas.
I've done internships in the areas of corporate auditing, basic accounting, the insurance sector (solvency II) and in an engineering firm. None of these really excited me, but I dont want to exclude these areas just yet.
The Following is also very important to me:
- I also have a very international background (5 languages) so I should be able to use this to my advantage in my future job.
- Also, it should be an area which offers a high potential of personal development.
- A high salary is a must (like i said, in most cases I can learn to enjoy something once i'm good at it)
- It should preferably give me the skills necessary to open my own business eventually
So hivemind, tell me why I should continue my studies in finance, real estate management, automotive management, controlling or something else? Something like international relations could be acceptable to me If I hear good enough reasons to study it. So far I only got people telling me to study whatever interests me, but it all interests me to some degree, just not enough to pick one specific niche.
I know this is a question that I will need to decide for myself in the end, but you guys can really help me make the decision!
Thank you for reading.
