Top executives of large organizations typically have spacious offices and numerous support staff. Long hours, including evenings and weekends are standard for most top executives and general managers, although their schedules may be flexible. Executives also travel considerably among international, national, regional, and local offices.
Education and Experience
Many top executives have a bachelor's or master’s degree in business administration, liberal arts, or a more specialized discipline. The specific type and level of education required often depends on the type of organization for which top executives work. Top executives must have highly developed personal qualities and be able to communicate clearly and persuasively.
