TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State University's Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship is launching new programs and expanding staff on its mission to train the next generation of successful business innovators.

It's exciting times for the Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship, a program that started only two years ago with an inaugural class of 80 students. Now the school is boasting more than 500 students.

Today, the school offers three entrepreneurship majors, but is planning to add more in the future. It will also offer a new master's level program, Textiles and Apparel.

"People are seeing that there's no barriers, our school has no barriers around it. We're not soiled. We're reaching out to everyone and I think people want that, students want that, faculty want that to expand their own because when you're learning, you're growing," said Susan Fiorito, Director and Entrepreneur-in-residence.

Fiorito says the new master level programs plan to launch this fall.
