Placement

The ESTEEM program provides its students with a unique combination of technical expertise and business acumen that allows them to master the modern marketplace and become leading innovators among the world’s most successful startups and corporations, as both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.

ESTEEM emphasizes the action of entrepreneurship, not just the study of it, with a combination of an entrepreneurship curriculum, a capstone commercialization thesis, and out-of- the-classroom experiences. By the time they graduate, due to the rigorous academic experience, exposure to real-life business ventures, and exceptional mentorship, ESTEEM students find their technical skills impactful and marketable in a rapidly changing economy. Students are launched into career tracks outside of narrow technical roles, taking positions of leadership at the intersection of business and innovation.

25% of ESTEEM graduates are currently working in a startup or early-stage company.
36% of those alumni in startup or early-stage companies are founders or co-founders.
