Chemistry student - is an MBA a good idea for me?

I'm a chemistry major (previously pre-med) but I decided that I would much rather go into the corporate/business world. I like chemistry, but I hate chemistry lab. I really like learning about chemistry and doing synthesis problems where you have to use all your knowledge to solve the problem. Chemistry lab, on the other hand, is a whole 'nother story and I can't stand it because it's so boring. So I think that if I graduate with a chemistry degree then I'm going to hate the type of work that I'll be doing. So my question is should I start over and major in something like accounting, or can I get my chemistry degree and then go straight into an MBA program (which is what I would rather do)? Also, I don't necessarily have goals of managing a pharmacy or chemical plant (but that would be cool). I'd be happy with any company
