BBA vs Math/Econ Major

So, let's pretend I'm interested in eventually obtaining a MBA (possibly law though). For my undergrad studies, should I work on obtaining MBA or major in math/econ (or perhaps dual-major)? Basically, will a BBA be more helpful in obtaining good internships/work experience that I'll probably need in order to eventually get into a good MBA program, or should I choose a major in math/econ?

    If it were me and I had no die hard interest in finance or anything that makes up the Business Administration program, I'd pick the Math/Econ route. I'd think that the Math/Econ route would open up more doors as far as internships and jobs are concerned.

    If you were going to a target school and investment banking was of interest to you, I'd pick a major that you enjoy in order to earn a high GPA.

    go to which ever major provides better recruiting on campus. chances are recruiters will have a preference. if they don't, then do what ever you like more.

    I know in reviewing resumes I would consider a math/econ major much more impressive than a BBA.
