The Tulane Executive in Residence Program allows current students the opportunity to learn from current and former executive-level alumni and parents about their career paths and what steps they took to reach their professional success.

Each EIR is committed to visit Tulane several times during the semester to engage in large, open forums for discussion as well as classroom presentations, student organization seminars and culminating with opportunities for students to meet one-on-one with the EIR near the end of the semester before finals.
