Im a business-geek :)
Im currently 16, and studying business, looking to go onto to University to study too.
I was wondering what do you guys think I should do to become a CEO of a large cooporation - E.G. Apple, Yahoo, Google you know the big guns in the technology business.
Technology is my sector; and honestly, my DREAM job would be CEO or highly ranked in Apple, but thats not as easy as it looks.
So guys, what do you think my chances are, and how sould I go about this this?

You must know that you can do it. Continuously work to achieve what it is you want. I'm not telling you to limit yourself, but it's usually doing the small things with perfection and zeal that get you noticed, hence fame.

It is entirely possible however, it is highly unlikely. I know people that are CEOs or high up in Multi-Milion dollar companies however Multi-Billion dollar company CEOs and High ups are harder to come by. Most of the people that I know got their position from being with a company from the beginning or starting it. So your best bet would be to create your own company. Honestly, your chances of being CEO of Apple are almost none, why would they choose you over someone that has been in the company forever, like the CFO or the Vice President. Personally I wouldn't keep my hopes up.

Try to get a job at those companies as soon as you can, then you can try to go up the ladder of ranks as your experience with the company increases. Or you could just start up your own company and work hard to make it succeed like what I'm doing.
