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. For this reason, ESTEEM emphasizes the action of entrepreneurship, not just the study of it.

  • Master’s Thesis Capstone: go-to-market approach with ND-based research, industry-sponsored projects or Founder’s Idea

ESTEEM students:

  • 44 students in the class of 2018 from various STEM fields
  • 100% receive some level of scholarship award
  • Average scholarship of $20k
