Saint Mary’s University’s Sobey School of Business’ Master of Technology Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MTEI) program has received a $2M gift from alumnus Robert Steele. The investment will double the size of the MTEI program, support the creation of resources, and provide scholarships to student entrepreneurs. The funds will also support three major initiatives: The Steele MTEI Scholarships, The Steele Entrepreneurship Awards, and The Steele Professorship in Entrepreneurship in the Sobey School of Business. “With the rapid change this year in how businesses operate, programs focused on the integration of technology and innovation like MTEI are more important now than ever before,” said Harjeet Bhabra, Dean of the SMU Sobey School of Business.
