Hi William, I'd have to agree with Allen on your question. However, are you interested in technology? If so, then I would consider looking into computer science or even Management Information Systems (MIS). However, if you're only interested in technology because it's growing, you don't have to major in this just because you think they'll be future jobs in the industry. If you're interested in money, maybe consider finance. If you're interested in food, maybe consider culinary studies. If you're interested in technology, I would consider computer science or MIS.

I applaud you for adding something to management because I always ask the same question to management majors; "What do you want to manage?" That's what I'd ask yourself to help make your decision.

I hope this helps! Best of luck to you.

Hi William - I would say that you wouldn't necessarily need a computer science degree to be A CEO but having a technical degree could be potentially beneficial in running a tech company. I would first start with identifying your strengths and what you enjoy studying. Being a CEO entails having a vision for your company and being able to be a good leader to encourage and influence people to help grow your vision.
