Many students come into the University of Notre Dame’s ESTEEM Graduate Program feeling restless and boxed in by the career choices laid out in front of them, but full of energy to create a better world and make an impact. They are fascinated and passionate about science or engineering while yearning to put their learning into action with the tools of business, innovation, and entrepreneurship. It is not unusual for ESTEEM graduates to leave the program throwing around words like “transformed”, “confident”, “problem solver”, and “entrepreneur” to describe themselves. ESTEEM allows students with technical backgrounds to explore the world of business and entrepreneurship, learning how to combine their current skills with new ones to become leaders in their chosen fields. Our alums include Janaee Wallace (2016), Karl de Zoeten (2017), Ralph Hayyat (2017), EB Conklin Reyes (2018), and Valeria Gonzalez (2018) from St. Edward’s University.
There was also a recent blog post featuring two St. Edward’s graduates: Valeria Gonzalez and EB Conklin Reyes:
They discuss their experiences at St. Edward’s and how each of their programs helped them develop the skills needed to succeed in the ESTEEM program.
