Have no idea what to specialise in

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I go to a normal university. Nothing special but they offer a sandwich placement program in-between second and third years. I was originally thinking on transferring to a much better ranked uni but I love the place where I live at the moment so decided against it. I did a foundation year in Business Management and going to enroll on the International Business & Management with Chinese in the uni. But the problem is I don't know what to specialise in. You see, I have this fear that if I don't get relevant experience now during my first year I don't really stand a chance in getting into a big firm. I don't expect to be an IB or go into finance, they don't appeal to me. Anyone got any advice on what I can do to find out what I like or what appeals to me in the business area?
