Michael Kitz, who earned dual degrees in engineering and theology at Notre Dame in 1985, and an MBA from the University of Michigan, spent more than two decades in industry, focused on product development, marketing, and management. His globetrotting career included years at Procter & Gamble, Motorola, Honeywell, Chrysler, Goodyear Tire, and OfficeMax, where he was chief marketing officer, head of product development, and leader of a large sourcing operation in China.

Kitz returned to Notre Dame three years ago as associate director of the College of Engineering’s Integrated Engineering and Business Practices Program, a two-course elective series started in 2000 at the urging of the college’s advisory council to give undergraduates exposure to the business world. Sixty to seventy percent of engineering majors now take at least one of the courses.
