    There are less and less people studying German, so I would say it'd give you a more competitive edge. That's not to say French wouldn't be useful.

    If you wish to work in the Netherlands, I'd say French. Many Dutch people have some German, but proficiency in French is rare. It could be a valuable skill.

    Either really, but as others have said German would probably have the edge for business.
