The Executive-in-Residence Program (EIRP) is a unique feature of The Peter J. Tobin College of Business in that it provides to both the undergraduate and graduate students in-school opportunities to engage in real-world business consulting with actual business and non-profit organizations. The mission of the Program is closely aligned with that of the College: to enable students experiential learning opportunities that are reflective of the real world of business into which they will graduate, and to make students more effective leaders through such experiences.
Admission into EIRP classes is competitive and students must apply and receive a notice of acceptance from the Program Director prior to registration. This ensures students, faculty and participating organizations of the highest quality consulting and learning experience. A variety of organizations choose to utilize the Executive-in-Residence Program for fresh perspectives on business problems, new ideas for product development or solution of other common and uncommon business challenges. Students receive academic credit for their work in EIRP and are regularly partnered with organizational executives throughout the course, which is supervised by a senior Tobin College faculty member.
A maximum of 18 students are admitted to each Executive-in-Residence class.
