Does undergrad degree matter if I plan to get a MA/MS?

So, I am currently a community transfer majoring in business admin or accounting (depends on which uni accepts me - hopefully will major accounting). My parents want me to go to a UC system, but given that they don't have an accounting major, I plan to go somewhere else. My question is that would having a BA/BS in business admin affect my chances of getting accepted to a graduate school if I want a MA/MS in accounting? As a matter of fact, how will it affect my chances if i want to go to a famous graduate school, lets say - USC? How can this also affect my chances of getting an accounting internship?

* for note, I do not excel in academics. I think that I actually under perform. But I do excel at work for some weird reason. My plan to get into grad school as of right now is to keep my gpa alive ~ 3.2ish - 3.4ish in college and heavily relay on the letters of recommendation, essay, and interview. I don't know if this piece of information helps, but I have included it just in case.
