It depends on your strengths and weaknesses. I had an unconditional offer from the same university to do both a Business Management course or an Economics course - I chose the latter.

Having said that, I probably wish I'd chosen Business Mgmt, because Economics degrees have a lot more maths than I anticipated. Especially coming from someone who changed out of A Level maths a few weeks in because I hated it lol.

It will help but just bear in mind that there's no guarantee that you'll get a good job with any degree subject on it's own.

If you're taking a BSc course, be aware that as discussed above, there is quite a heavy amount of mathematical content in an Economics course which will be far different in nature to one of Business Management. I'd go over the courses you actually want to do (not just the subject but what the universities you are thinking of going to have structured their courses as) and make sure it sounds interesting and matches your strengths.

1. Define 'good'
2. It depends on the job you want
3. Depends on if you get a 1st or 2.1
