Executives in Residence - We Bring C-Suite Business Leaders To You!
Each year, chairs, CEOs, presidents, and other top executives visit the campuses for a day and interact with students as part of our Executive in Residence program. Located in New York, the business capital of the world, the Lubin School of Business has a unique competitive positioning that provides opportunities for corporate partnerships and close relationships with the business community. Our location is part of Lubin's experience-based learning advantage.
The Executive in Residence program has been in existence for more than 30 years and typically executives visit both campuses each year. The executives lecture on timely business issues, providing unique insights to students from a real business perspective. Students have the opportunity to interact with the executives throughout the day, asking questions, learning about positions in the industry, and sharing their concerns as they prepare for their own business careers. We also find that our visiting executives find the experience to be very rewarding as they interact with students and faculty, giving back to the community and helping to shape tomorrow's business leaders. You might meet the CEO of the next company you work for!
The two Spring 2020 Executives in Residence events have been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hoping to reschedule them in Fall 2020.
