As our Executive in Residence, you don’t have to share the same thoughts and philosophies as us about the future of marketing. You just need the desire and experience to formulate ideas and use those ideas to help us fulfill our mission.
As our Executive in Residence, you understand that your responsibility is to the consumer, the industry, current and future marketing professionals, and society as a whole. You are a thought-leader but, most importantly, you take action to realize the Center’s goals and work with Fordham’s brightest students and faculty.
This relationship is not one-sided. As our Executive in Residence, you can tap into our students’ fresh thinking and create a pipeline of the most capable students and young professionals into your company.
You also partner with the Center’s research and development resources to further develop your unique ideas – which are often those that others are too afraid to pursue.
