Admissions  |  Advising

The Jim Moran College 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 options to major in commercial entrepreneurship or retail entrepreneurship. Our goal is to expand the curriculum to other areas of entrepreneurship.

The Jim Moran College 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 College 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.


Admission to the Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship is limited-access. To be admitted, students must have:

  2. Cumulative GPA on all college work of at least 2.70
  3. Completion of all required prerequisites coursework with at least a grade of C minus or better (see below)
