Visiting Executive Program


Periodically, the McDonough Center brings to campus an accomplished leader who “gives back” by interacting with students through meaningful activities. The Visiting Executive Program encourages substantive interaction between the executive and the students. These meetings include class presentations, one-on-one sessions, lunch meetings, and Q&A sessions. The Visiting Executive Program works closely with the College’s Alumni Office to bring to campus graduates who can share their professional development experiences with the campus community.
