The School’s Executive-in-Residence (EIR) Program outlines roles for both sitting and retired leaders who have remarkable career accomplishments. EIRs can offer their expertise in a variety of capacities on either a full-time or part-time basis for specific periods of time. They can bring tremendous energy, insights, passion and value to bear in helping us develop our curricula, expand our corporate engagements and enhance student experiences and learning.
The EIR Program aligns with a strategic priority of the School: To provide transformative experiences for our students that are reflective of the real world into which they will graduate. From student research projects to outreach and relationship building to career advice for students, the School’s EIR Program brings an applied focus to student learning as well as enriched interaction opportunities with business partners.
