It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Jim Riordan. Dr. Riordan, Director of the Sport MBA program, has been with FAU College of Business since 2000, and his leadership of this program was simply first-rate.
With Dr. Riordan’s leadership, the Sport MBA program has been consistently ranked as one of the top Sport MBA programs in the country. He has made connections, opened doors and helped shape the careers of hundreds of students over the years.
We all love and will miss Dr. Riordan. While his physical presence is no longer with us, he leaves an outstanding legacy here, and his spirit lives on within all of us in the Owl family.
We have created the Dr. Jim Riordan Scholarship Endowment as the way to continue making an impact for FAU MBA Sport to honor his legacy at FAU and in our community.
