Executives In Residence


The Orfalea College of Business is proud to bring its Executives in Residence program to Cal Poly’s campus. Throughout the year, business leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs will spend time with our students and faculty to share their unique insights on their field and how they’ve earned their success. The executives, including many of our own alumni, can provide current students with a relatable perspective on how their Cal Poly degree prepared them for challenging, dynamic careers that lay ahead. Faculty will also bolster their understanding of current industry trends as they shape their curriculum to empower career-ready graduates. Through class lectures, faculty round tables and campus tours, the executives will get to know Cal Poly today, seeing first hand how Learn by Doing breeds success in the Orfalea College of Business.
