Executive in the Classroom
Every fall, eight to ten industry representatives share their business perspectives through an undergraduate course, Executive in the Classroom. Executives discuss their education and career paths, profile their companies, and outline industry issues such as production, regulation, research and development, food safety, nutrition, and consumer healthcare.
Through the program, many Nutrition Science undergraduates make connections for internships and jobs. Executives also network with Purdue faculty, and some even become Corporate Affiliates. Corporate visitors provide a real-world viewpoint for both students and faculty.
