Executives in Residence (EIRs) are San Diego professionals who volunteer a significant amount of their time to help guide students through the Business Professional Development (BPD) program. EIRs bring real-world experience to the classroom and educate students about the professional skills they will need to pursue their desired careers. More than 80% of students from CSUSM remain in the region, therefore, EIRs are helping to shape and prepare future San Diego business leaders.
