Is a business management degree the right direction to become a CEO/MD for a company

I was asked this question today by a young man . [Is a business management degree the right direction to become a CEO/MD for a company?]

My Answer: NO!

Let’s look at the definition of a CEO according to Wikipedia

A Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is the highest-ranking corporate officer (executive) or administrator in charge of total management of an organization. An individual appointed as a CEO of a corporation, company, organization, or agency typically reports to the board of directors

Why I said No 

By definition a CEO is an administrator..

My advice

Be the One the CEO reports to! 

Aspire to Own Your Own Business. 

Entrepreneurship

BeYourOwnBoss

Then work your way backwards and see what you need to achieve the status. Learn the trade and Be Your Own Boss!

Reminds me of Douglas Kruger’s “Why are we so fanatically hung up on Jobs
