Budding entrepreneurs at Mississippi State now will have the chance to run their own business ideas past some of the biggest executives in Mississippi thanks to a new program being launched this week.
The Executive in Residence program will allow any student the chance to consult face-to-face with visiting business executives during designated office hours throughout the academic year. Participating executives include Mississippi Development Authority Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Old Waverly’s George Bryan and Hyperion Technologies’ Geoffrey Carter.
