What jobs would a degree in economics and business prepare me for?

I want a job that is somewhat hands on and challenging and will make decent money. The degree I'm thinking of getting is a double major in Business Administration and Economics. What would the job that you suggest entail on a day to day basis? Pros and cons?

You'll have a myriad of job opportunities with a double major in business administration and economics; especially if you go and obtain your MBA. These majors are excellent preparation for jobs such as: financial analyst, economist, corporate analyst, financial planner, stock broker, accountant, and many more.

Anything having to do with $ and finance, which is like over 50% of the jobs out there... Pros: You can always find jobs to apply to ... Cons: The competition is always going to be ridiculous, even after you get an MBA.
