College of Business & Technology

Executive in Residence

The purpose of the Executive in Residence (EIR) program is to equip our students with the tools to navigate beyond their Western experience. Successful alumni and friends of the college are invited to share how they have charted successful careers. The Executive in Residence Program was initiated through the generosity of Drs. Jim and Carolyn Tripp, professors in the Department of Marketing and Finance at Western Illinois University.
