Best college(s) for an aspiring Businessman?

Hi everybody, I am a 16 year old, who plans to go to college, major in Economics, work for a while, enter a top MBA program, and then possibly end up in a career in business, maybe eventually Chief Financial Officer. I was wondering which colleges you think would be good for somebody taking a path like mine. Some people have been saying that liberal arts schools would be better for me, to teach me "how to learn and not what to learn" while others tell me to go to a top university. My credentials are pretty high, so what are your opinions? Thank you.

Here is your advice for the day- delete your account on here, apply to good colleges and see where you get in, and then live your life one day at a time. You're 16 years old, you don't know shit, and you shouldn't know shit. Get the looney "I want to be a CFO" ideas out of your head. Do you have any idea what a CFO does? Probably not. You're welcome.

Damn...when I was 16, I was just trying to find out what the best lineup would be to take on the Elite Four.

Nidoking, Pidgeot, Blastoise, Venusaur, Articuno, Chardizard.

Best college? Get into Harvard.

I know the whole "I remember when I was your age" deal is a little trite, but damn, I remember when I was your age. Haha, my goal was to become the CEO of Toyota. Like Black Jack said, take it one step at a time. It's good to plan and have ambitions, but let's get to college first, shall we?

The MOST important you need to do right now...is teach your Blastoise Surf, Blizzard, Earthquake, and Slash. You'll thank me when you're working FO on Wall Street.

If we're talking Red/Yellow/Blue then I"m not sure if Blastoise can use Blizzard/Earthquake, only in Silver/Gold/Crystal. Best lineup for the elite 4/Lance in RYB includes Pidgeot, Mew 2, Venusaur, Zaptos, Charzard and Blastoise all levels 50 and higher.

What is wrong with you people?! So much for advice, almost all of you are feeble minded, arrogant fools.

This is the first (and last) time I will post to Wall Street Oasis. And Black Jack, yours was the funniest.
