Hey, I am close to applying for college and computer REALLY interests me.

I was just wondering, I know that there are some IT people on this forum, and wanted to know to become like Head of IT and stuff for a large corparation in a big city and work like in the server farms and stuff what kind of education do you need...

I really like working with networking and server managing and I have always wanted to take a laptop go in front of a rack and plug in and type fancy things on the keyboard :thumbsup:

While knowing hardware, software, and some elements of programming is very useful, the real money( and challenge, to my mind) is in managing, which requires a high proficiency in communication, people management, and organizational skills. Choose your electives carefully and don't disdain a few business courses, and minor in something like English Literature or Philosophy.
