(I don't know why but for some reason my other question was "downvoted". I guess I need to re-phrase it for it to be more on-topic... please help me do so if it isn't!)
As you can guess from my nickname, I am an aspiring CEO. My dream is to lead large multinational operations one day with vast and complex supply chains and production processes. It could be an aircraft manufacturer, or a transport company, or some other producer of a large good.
(Note: I doubt I can start up my own company in that field, simply because it's too vast and impossible to do for one person alone. So I am not looking for a "CEO-of-myself" role, no thanks!)
The question is: are there any (and if yes, which) specific business areas and experiences one should be exposed to in order to reach such a high level of responsibility?
Do they only need to be business-savvy or do they need to have worked in a core business function like operations or logistics?
(If for some random reason you dislike some part of the question please don't close this and instead help rephrase it or suggest what is needed to rephrase it... thanks)
