The Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation (JCEI) has created affiliations across Indiana University’s campus to foster the entrepreneurial perspective. JCEI's home office is in the Kelley School of Business with collaborations established in the Maurer School of Law, the College of Arts & Sciences, the Jacobs School of Music, the O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, and the Luddy School of Informatics and Computing. We have created a special customized Cross-Campus Certificate in Entrepreneurship to bring the academic component of entrepreneurship to all students on the campus. Our programs provide students with a wide range of classroom and experiential opportunities to discover and develop the “entrepreneurial perspective” throughout the entire campus. JCEI is recognized as the focal point for entrepreneurial educational development within any discipline at Indiana University.
Now Every Student at IU Can Access the Entrepreneurial Mindset
The Cross-Campus Certificate in Entrepreneurship consists of fifteen semester hours (five three-credit semester courses or some combination of required courses and a collection of experiential events). Only students outside the Kelley School of Business will be admitted into the Certificate in Entrepreneurship program. The program has three required courses and two elective courses. This necessitates the students learn the basic issues involved with entrepreneurship, while maintaining some flexibility in tailoring the program to the student’s particular area(s) of interest.
Located in the Jacobs School of Music, this extracurricular program supported by Dean Gwyn Richards offers students in the musical arts an opportunity to learn some of the business principles necessary to enhance their careers. In addition, a Minor in Entrepreneurship is offered for music students through the Kelley School of Business.

The faculties of the O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the Kelley School of Business offer a collaborative certificate in Social Entrepreneurship at the graduate level. To earn the certificate, students must take courses on social entrepreneurship, sustainability, and public-sector management in addition to selected courses designed specifically for this field of study. The certificate includes an internship in the field of social enterprise.
The Hoosier Hatchery, located on campus at Seventh and Jordan Avenue, provides space for students working on innovations with commercial potential.
JCEI works closely with the newly created Shoemaker Institute for Innovation (“The Shoebox”) for IT ventures as well as other informatics-related ideas. In addition, JCEI has established a unique partnership with the Luddy School and efforts in Silicon Valley.
