How to Become a CEO in BitLife (2020) – What to Study & Your Needed Career Path!

Our Bitlife CEO Guide will walk you through all you need to know to obtain this highly sought after career in the game! Being a CEO in BitLife isn't as stressful as it might be in real life, but getting the position requires you to follow some exact steps in your schooling and job of choice. This isn't always foolproof, you might need to reset your game a few times because you might get unlucky with your stats, or RNG will usually determine if you were meant for a different career path.

Setting Up Your CEO Character

The main thing to focus on is making your Bitizen smart. So, run through creating your character a few times until you start with at least 70% smarts (higher is better). To influence this as your character gets older, make sure to go to the School area and hit "Study Harder" to up your smarts. Higher tier career people need to be pretty smart, and in Bitlife that is no different! Once you turn 12 you will be able to start going to the Library, so make sure to do that every year you progress in from now on. You might as well also Meditate, head to the movies, and do stuff with your parents to maintain your relationship with them. When you hit High School, make sure that you join at least two extracurricular activities. These are required if you want to get a scholarship and not have to pay for your college!

During this process, it's important to keep yourself healthy and disease free. So, once the gym is available, make sure to head there and get your workout on. Once you are 12 or 13 years old you can get a Freelance Gig or a Part-Time Job to make some money on the side. Due to you being smart, you should unlock the "Tutor Freelance Gig" which pays quite well. Having some extra cash can be useful, but it isn't totally necessary.

How to Become a CEO

To become a CEO in BitLife, you will need to go down the Business/Graduate School path and get a Corporate job. Once you graduate from High School you'll be offered to go to University. Go to Business School and continue going to the library if your smart stat isn't high enough. You will also want to study hard and join a couple of activities to get another scholarship for further education. After you've graduated from Business School, you will want to then go to Graduate School. Once you've reached Graduate School, you won't really need to bother with studying or activities, because they don't seem to matter at this point.

Now, the important part for setting yourself up on the CEO path: get a job that says "Corporate" next to it. It doesn't matter what it is, but this will set you up on the path to being head of a company. You will need to get at least 15 years of experience in your corporate job. Once you do, look for the "Assistant Vice President" job which should be available under the listings. Once you get that job, you'll want to work hard each year and eventually you'll be promoted to Vice President, Executive Vice President, Managing Director, and finally CEO! If you aren't being promoted, try to move up to the next tier of job by browsing the job listings.
