The Executive-in-Residence Program in the Miller College of Business at Ball State University is designed to enrich student learning and faculty development by introducing accomplished business leaders to the university community. 

Over the years, this program has brought to campus senior corporate executives, business professionals, and successful entrepreneurs, from a variety of industries, large and small, private and public.

During the residency, the visiting executive speaks in a number of classes and meets with students, faculty, and local business groups. The series provides an unrivaled opportunity for all to learn from and interact with a highly accomplished business leader up front and in person.
