What should I major in if I want to be a CEO?

I would do a masters in Business or Finance. Or Both if you can take the time & money to do so. Good luck!

I'd say, get your masters degree in business administration. Then learn whatever you need for a specific business. With the MBA, you can get a job in any corporation and work your way up.

Business, Finance, Marketing, Communications, Accounting - I would try to major in one of these options and possibly minor in another. Or, if you definitely know what you business is going to be, you could also try to minor in a subject that relates to your trade.
