Executive-in-Residence Program

Heidelberg's Executives-in-Residence (EIR) Program provides students with realistic career advice and a link to the corporate world. The high level executives bring real-life practical perspectives that are melded with the theoretical knowledge advanced in business classes. It increases student awareness of the importance of developing professional based academic experiences and the role of leadership skills in managing desired changes.

These executives, who are highly success professionals with experience in running for-profit and non-profit organizations, share their wisdom and vision in achieving successful and meaningful careers. They serve as guest lecturers, interacting with both students and faculty in one-on-one and group settings, provide insights to student organizations, and engage with the campus community by providing networking opportunities for both students and faculty.
