The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) participated in the New Graduate Student Orientation Resource Expo recently held by The Graduate School. Like many other things these days, it was presented both in virtual and on-campus formats to provide access to all incoming graduate students.
Erica Bracey, LaunchGSU Manager, and Deniece Griffin, ENI’s Marketing & Events Coordinator, teamed up to present Entrepreneurship at Georgia State to the new graduate students who may or may not have been familiar with entrepreneurship programs and offerings available.
The presentation covered:
MBA Concentration in Entrepreneurship
M.I.S. in Biomedical Enterprise
Graduate Certificate in Disruptive Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Other Entrepreneurship Resources
Main Street Entrepreneurs Seed Fund
ENI as an academic unit offers degree programs, co-curricular activities (events, workshops and competitions), a business accelerator and more. Plus, the program is open to all Georgia State University students…all colleges…all majors.
To simply recap the expo, both our presentation at the virtual and on-campus orientations provided new graduate students with the information they need to start the semester prepared. Questions about ENI’s workshops and events on starting a business was mentioned often. One academic program area gained a lot of attention – the exciting Graduate Certificate in Disruptive Innovation & Entrepreneurship. One of three (3) certificates offered by Robinson shows a lot of promise among graduate-level students. They were happy to learn that by only taking four classes over the course of two semesters, they’ll have the confidence in the disruptive technologies that are currently changing the way we do business today.
