As participants in the Executives in Residence Program at Columbia Business School, a number of
senior executives from a wide range of industries augment the educational experience for students.

These leaders are recently retired or semiretired from one career and avidly pursue other activities
and boards. Among other projects, the executives counsel students on their academic and career
goals, lecture in class and advise clubs.

The program, established in 1977, is an extraordinary resource for students, faculty and staff and has
contributed significantly over the years to the strategic development of the School.
