The mission of the Executive-in-Residence Program at Shenandoah University is to enhance the academic excellence of the Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business through the practical experience of a veteran business executive. As a faculty, we believe students deserve a school that has built strong relationships with the business community and assists them in their transition process to the business world.
