Dear FSU Family,
I have some incredibly exciting news to share. Today, Florida State University is announcing the largest gift in its history — $100 million — from Jan Moran and The Jim Moran Foundation to honor the late Jim Moran and create the nation’s largest interdisciplinary, degree-granting school of entrepreneurship. The Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship will stand alone, offering and greatly expanding the entrepreneurship courses currently taught in the College of Business and making them available to all FSU students.
We anticipate a phased approach to the development of the entrepreneurial school leading up to 2018. It is expected that the number of entrepreneurship majors and minors will grow dramatically and that the program will admit several hundred majors by the third year. We are ready to build on the legacy of Jim Moran to create a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem throughout the state of Florida, the region and the nation.
We are grateful to Jan Moran and The Jim Moran Foundation for this extremely generous gift. Please see www.fsu.edu for additional information.
