The revolutionary and highly experiential Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship is dedicated to teaching those who wish to embark on an entrepreneurial journey. We attract students across disciplines and provide them with the education and skills they need to become entrepreneurs.
The entrepreneurship major has been offered at FSU Tallahassee and Panama City since the beginning of fall semester 2017. The Jim Moran School’s major focal areas are Commercial Entrepreneurship, Social Entrepreneurship, and Retail Entrepreneurship. Six minors are offered in commercial, social, retail, hospitality, computational science and STEM.
Entrepreneurs in Residence from colleges across the FSU campus, who are successful professionals, teach courses and provide coaching and expertise to accelerate the launch and success of student entrepreneurs.
In 2018, the Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship launched an Entrepreneurship Summer Camp for high school students and an Entrepreneurship and Innovation Living Learning Community for first year students. An Entrepreneurship Master’s Program will begin in the fall, 2019.
The InNOLEvation® Center for Student Engagement has 14 student businesses in residence in our Greenhouse incubator and provides $50,000 per year in Jim Moran Micro Grants for student businesses.
