Saint Anselm College's partnership with notre Dame combines innovation and businessOn Dec. 3, a group of students interested in science and business learned about a one-year master's program through the University of Notre Dame that can help them launch their careers.

The program, ESTEEM, which stands for Engineering, Science, and Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence Master's, combines technical work in science-related fields with training and mentoring in entrepreneurship.

"It's like a mini-MBA for people with bachelor's degrees in science," said David Murphy, the program's director, who spoke to students about Saint Anselm College's partnership with Notre Dame.

The inter-collegiate partnership aims to assist Saint Anselm students in furthering their education and providing them with additional employment skills. Students complete an undergraduate degree at Saint Anselm and then spend a year at Notre Dame earning a Master of Science degree in entrepreneurship.

ESTEEM combines innovation with business expertise, allowing students to apply knowledge gained in their undergraduate studies to real-world situations.

Stephen Gaudet '11 was the first student to take advantage of the partnership program. He began his first job at Raytheon, a defense technology company, only a week after receiving his master's from ESTEEM. Today, he remains with Raytheon, working in the software engineering department.

"I am very happy with my decision to enroll in the ESTEEM program," Gaudet recently told the college. "It turned out to be an excellent complement to the education I received at Saint Anselm."

Students who are interested in the program should contact Ian Durham, associate professor of the physics department, at or visit the ESTEEM website.
