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 a requirement.
