These Emissaries Are All Business
The Eberly College of Business and Information Technology’s Executive-in-Residence Program brings successful executives to campus for up to a week. They make presentations to selected classes and meet with departmental faculty and student groups.
Executives often provide insight regarding real-world events, organizational challenges, and career opportunities in specific fields. They are assigned an office suite, where they can provide mentoring support and advice to individual students and groups of students.
The Entrepreneur-in-Residence assignment is essentially the same as the Executive-in-Residence. The difference, according to Eberly Assistant Dean Cyndy Strittmatter, is that entrepreneurs are individuals who have successfully created new business entities, and their presentations are more focused on business start-up and growth issues.
