Florida State University on Thursday named Michael D. Hartline dean of the College of Business.

Hartline joined the faculty in 2001. He has served as interim dean since July.

"Michael is a highly collaborative, dedicated leader," said Sally McRorie, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. "He has great strengths in relationship building at every level from colleagues and students to alumni and donors."

Hartline succeeds Caryn Beck-Dudley, who left after nine years to become dean of Santa Clara University's Leavey School of Business.

While he was interim dean, Hartline helped secure a $100 million gift from Jan Moran and the Jim Moran Foundation to create the Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship.

"I am incredibly honored to be named dean and eager to continue serving our great college and university," Hartline said. "We are putting the pieces in place that will keep us on the path toward preeminence. Our faculty, staff, students and alumni are outstanding, and I look forward to working with them and FSU leadership on key initiatives that will further enhance our reputation around the world."

FSU's business college ranks No. 39 among business schools at public universities by U.S. News and World Report.
