    If your looking for solely business then something like Accounting + MIS but if your looking for selling specific things look at a science and sales. So something like for cars Mech Engineering and Sales or slight variations.

    Honestly, it depends on what your dream field is in? Corporate finance, consulting, venture cap., I banking, your own business & so on…me for example, I want to do mid-size consulting and I'm studying supply chain and minoring in finance.

    Both math and economics are offered in A&S (liberal arts), finance and accounting are offered in the business school. I think it would be hard to double major from 2 different schools within an university.

    In general, UG business degree is not as hard as engineering, math, or other science majors. If you want to go into IB, it is useful to minor or take few math courses because some IB work could be very math intensive.

    My daughter double majored in math and econ, took few courses in finance/accounting from the business school to show she has an aptitude. She said her math background is very useful at work.

    There is no magic combination or secret degree. Major in something that will expand your knowledge base in an applicable way (i.e., Understanding the implications of the Treaty of Versailles is not applicable in business), get involved, and network, network, NETWORK!
