Florida State University’s newest school—the Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship—will now become its newest college, the university announced Friday during its Board of Trustees meeting.
With the board’s unanimous approval of the name change, the Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship becomes the nation’s first stand-alone college of entrepreneurship. In addition to elevating the college’s prestige and profile, the transition acknowledges that the college grants graduate degrees.
“Entrepreneurship is one of Florida State’s strategic goals and having the nation’s first stand-alone college of entrepreneurship signals our strong commitment to that goal,” said Sally McRorie, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. “We are so thankful to Jan Moran and The Jim Moran Foundation for their generosity in helping us fulfill this vision.”
