Executive in Residence Program

Influence the Next Generation of Business Leaders

Benedictine College, one of the best Catholic Colleges in America and one of the top Schools of Business in the region, offers a unique program whereby executives can give significantly of their experience to college students who seek to network with and emulate them.

The Executive in Residence Program allows a marketplace executive to reserve a full day on our beautiful campus in Atchison, Kansas, less than one hour from downtown Kansas City.   The day can consist of meeting and mentoring students, sharing your professional experience in the classroom, hosting a lunch-and-learn to share about your company and employment opportunities, and meeting the faculty to help influence curriculum and coverage in your area of expertise.

You will be given your own, beautiful office for the day.  Classrooms and offices are located in the brand new, state-of-the-art Ferrell Academic Center overlooking the Missouri River valley.  You will find the accommodations and the hospitality second to none!

Overnight accommodations are also available with numerous bed-and-breakfasts in the area, not to mention the Abbey Guest House.  Donna Bonnel can assist you with these arrangements.

You have so much to offer the leaders of tomorrow.  Please join us in this effort to prepare them for success in the business world and in life.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
