Entrepreneurship & Innovation Institute
ENI courses are open to all Georgia State University students (graduate and undergraduate) regardless of their current major.

ENI courses teach students the tools, skills and mindset to confidently pursue a new business venture. You will learn how to discover important and unsatisfied customer needs, design compelling value propositions to satisfy those needs, and design viable business models that can profitably deliver on value propositions.
The cast of ENI professors is composed of business professionals with years of experiences as entrepreneurs and/or corporate innovators.
While it may be helpful, no previous business experience is required. We believe entrepreneurs can emerge from any industry or academic domain.
Currently, ENI offers undergraduate electives on various entrepreneurship and innovation themes. These undergraduate electives can be taken as electives to complement any program of study, or to complete a minor in entrepreneurship. At the graduate level, ENI offers electives to complement any program of study, or to complete an MBA concentration in entrepreneurship. There are also interdisciplinary programs with other Georgia State University Colleges such as: B.I.S. in media entrepreneurship, B.I.S. in social entrepreneurship and M.I.S. in biomed enterprise.
To get a minor in entrepreneurship, an undergraduate student must take ENI 3101, ENI 3102, ENI 3103 and two additional approved electives (totaling five courses). Please contact your academic adviser to Request to Add a Minor to your current program of study.
Yes. Due to Robinson degree-level requirements, this may require you take additional credit hours beyond the 120-hour requirement. Please contact your academic adviser to Request to Add a Minor to your current program of study.
At this time there is no option to major in entrepreneurship at Georgia State University. A B.B.A. in entrepreneurship is currently under review with the Board of Regents of Georgia. Please continue to check our website for updates to our program offerings.
While entrepreneurship-themed courses have been taught in the J. Mack Robinson College of Business for many years, The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Institute was officially approved by Georgia State University in May 2016.
ENI currently offers a vast array of events and activities such as workshops, guest speakers, visits to startup spaces, pitch and business model competitions, and the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization (CEO) student organization.
E-House (short for Entrepreneurship House) is a living-learning community that provides Georgia State University students with entrepreneurial ambitions the chance to live, learn and connect with others who share similar interests and aspirations. E-House is currently located in the University Commons.
ENI students have access to exclusive programming and competitions as well as the potential for incubation.
