|I've been out of undergrad for 2 years now, and have worked in 2 mid-sized companies, and 2 very large ones (internships/full-time).|
And as I navigate the org charts of these companies, I wonder: what did the executives at these companies do differently that got them to where they are?
At first, I naturally assumed it was experience and age (or time within the company), but that doesn't seem to be the case at all.
What I have noticed is, generally, they tend to have MBAs or work on the business aspects of the company, or were executives/CEOs/Founders of other smaller companies that eventually got acquired.
I understand there is no single path or answer to this question but I'm curious to hear your opinions?
