The educational background of Internet executives varies as
widely as the nature of their diverse responsibilities. Many have a
bachelor's degree in computer science, information management,
information technology, information security, business
administration, or a liberal arts field such as economics or
communications. If you are interested in a management career
dealing with the Internet, you should plan on going to college
after high school. Take a college preparatory curriculum, including
classes in science, history, and government. Be sure to take as
many computer science classes as possible so that you have a basic
understanding of the technology that is available. Because an
executive must communicate with a wide range of people, take as
many English classes as possible to hone your communication skills.
Speech classes are another way to improve these skills. Courses in
mathematics and business are also excellent choices to help you
prepare for this career. A foreign language may also be helpful in
preparing for today's global business market.
