Why I chose ESTEEM:

I was looking to compliment my technical skills and scientific background with a business acumen to help kickstart a career in a new role and industry. The entrepreneurial aspects of the program interested me because unlike most programs were there is a very defined curriculum, ESTEEM gives you the opportunity to pave your path by choosing specific classes and work on projects that interest you for the year.

My capstone project and why I'm excited about it:

For my capstone project, I am working on implementing new artificial intelligence technologies in the financial services industry. Specifically, I will be helping investment institutions make more informed and faster decisions in their markets. I'm looking forward to the fall and spring semesters were I can really begin validating the market and diving deeper into the core technologies - and of course, football season!

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

Ideally continue to work on or for a startup but judging from last year's class placements, I'm hopeful some other great opportunities will arise over the year.

What I like to do when I'm not working:

Ideally continue to work on or for a startup but judging from last year's class placements, I'm hopeful some other great opportunities will arise over the year.

And, finally:

If you're thinking about applying, all I can say that it's a fantastic opportunity to add a business skill set to your already existing technical and scientific knowledge - go for it!.
