Wabash College Announces Notre Dame Partnership

Posted: Updated:

Wabash College and the University of Notre Dame have announced a partnership that will create postgraduate opportunities for Wabash students. Notre Dame will reserve two seats every year in both the Engineering, Science, and Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence Master's and Master of Science in Patent Law programs.

"Wabash is very pleased to be partnering with Notre Dame on these exciting new master’s degree programs for our students. It has been a goal of our Center for Business, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship to develop partnerships that expand opportunities for Wabash men to demonstrate their critical thinking and problem solving skills, and we are proud to build this important connection with Notre Dame,” Wabash President Gregory Hess said.

Wabash College says two of its recent graduates are part of the current ESTEEM class that started in June.

“Through the partnerships with Notre Dame, Wabash students are able to get the focused training they want to further their careers so that they can go from the research bench to the boardroom with ease. Being able to point Wabash students to these proven graduate programs allows students in the hard sciences or with strong analytical backgrounds new opportunities to use their critical thinking skills to enrich our community,” CIBE Director Roland Morin said.
