Senior vice presidents play an important role in every company. Without them, those companies wouldn't have set business goals and internal issues would go by unattended. Thankfully, senior vice presidents are around so we can avoid disaster.
This job can come with a few tough roles, such as when an employee has fallen out of compliance with company policies. Sometimes those conversations will go smoothly, but as with any job, you'll have days where those conversations will go south quickly.
A lot of senior vice presidents started out with just a bachelor's degree. So it really doesn't take much education. Really, the only thing that might stop you is if you don't have enough experience. But you can always change that easily enough.
