The Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship accepts students at the Tallahassee and Panama City campuses. Students at either campus will be able to major in commercial entrepreneurship. Tallahassee students will have the additional options of social entrepreneurship and retail entrepreneurship. Our goal is to expand the curriculum to other areas of entrepreneurship.

The Jim Moran School offers students case-study learning while providing opportunities for innovative, hands-on application. Students will take introductory courses in entrepreneurship and specialized courses in technology commercialization, strategy formulation, organizational design and venture finance. The curriculum is designed by full-time faculty and Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs). They will teach students team project planning and how to launch, manage and generate income from a venture. The foundation of the Jim Moran School is its creative and dynamic interdisciplinary entrepreneurship curriculum.

The undergraduate degree prepares tomorrow’s entrepreneurs for the difficult financial, ethical, legal and global competitive challenges of the future. The Jim Moran School’s programs will maximize a student’s ability to analyze and respond effectively to these issues, improve critical thinking and build up the discipline needed to compete in today’s challenging and potentially lucrative field of entrepreneurship.


The majors housed within the Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship are both limited-access and limited-enrollment programs. To be admitted, students must have:

  1. Completed at least 52 semester hours
    2. Completed ECO 2013, ECO 2023, STA 2023, MAC 1105 or MAC 2233, and any leadership course with a grade of “C” or better in each course
    3. Earned the required GPA of at least 2.7

Students typically must submit an application in the spring semester during their sophomore year to be admitted for the following fall semester.

The Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship application will be available for the 2019-2020 year sometime in November and the deadline for the application will be in February, for the Tallahassee campus.
