If, in the future, I want to be the CEO of a tech company, would it be better to do product management, management consulting, or something else after business school?

If CEO of a bigger firm, then both product/consulting works... if CEO of a smaller startup that is high growth, then product 100%

If you're looking to become the CEO of a tech company, I'd recommend working at one. Ideally, one that is small enough where you can directly observe a talented CEO. The best roles to learn tend to be either those where you're selling the product (sales or marketing) or building the product (design, PM, engineering). At some point, you may want to try out starting a company for yourself.
