The Executive-in-Residence (EiR) learning community will provide an exclusive and unique opportunity for residents to get hands-on experience with Purdue alumni who are at the top of their companies and industries. Students will gain one-on-one mentoring and professional development with our Executive-in-Residence alumni. Students in this learning community will get exclusive access to the Executives outside of regularly scheduled EiR events, including on-site visits with Executives in their places of business and hometowns. There are no required or prerequisite courses associated with this learning community. There is a strong preference for students who have participated in previous Executive- in-Residence programs, however, this is not requirement.
