A principal chief operating officer, often referred to as a COO, is an executive position within a company which requires varied and all-inclusive responsibilities. This person is responsible for the company's daily operations and will generally keep extended hours, though some may stick to traditional daytime hours. Formal education requirements for the position also vary greatly; many established companies and organizations require a COO to have obtained a bachelor’s or master's degree in a business-related field, while others choose candidates based on their experience within the field.
