Building Relationships and Making an Impact
In 2021, the School of Business Administration (SBA) established its Executive in Residence (EIR) Program with founding Executive, Kevin McQuilkin. The SBA’s EIR program is a unique opportunity for retired or semi-retired senior level executives to get involved with students, faculty, staff, and community in support of the school’s values of academic excellence, engagement in our university and our community and our Jesuit legacy of inspired, confident, and innovative action.
The program includes various areas of focus including but not limited to:
- Mentoring and advising students
- Working with the Center for Career and Professional Development
- Job placement
- Career counseling
- Organizing guest lectures, special interest presentations, and panel discussions
- Consulting with faculty on curriculum development and skill building
The impact that an EIR can bring to a program is quite substantial. An EIR can be an excellent avenue for sharing practical experience with students helping to prepare the next generation of leaders. In all cases, the presence of seasoned and successful executives on campus provides students with role models. Sharing lessons learned from practical experience, providing an opportunity for the EIR to use his/her knowledge to share life experiences for the benefit of the next generation of professionals is priceless.
