Should I switch out of Econ?

Currently a junior at a top 25 school in the college of arts and sciences. I have a 2022 IB SA position secured. Was planing to finish out my economics degree but really not enjoying these higher level courses. Want to chill for the rest of college as well so would it be bad to change to something like a film and media major? It's been something that's interested me but will a film/media major be bad if I decide to exit IB or go to PE? Or will it look bad for MBA programs down the line? Also switching to an arts major will probably be a lot easier than Econ so I'd probably boost my gpa up a good amount.
