The Jim Moran Institute For Global Entrepreneurship Accepting Applications For Small Business And Nonprofit Executive Programs

Boca Raton, FL — The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship in the Florida State University College of Business is accepting applications for its Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) and Nonprofit Executive Program (NPEP), held in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Offered at no cost to participants, the programs are funded by Jan Moran and The Jim Moran Foundation. Application deadline is Monday, Sept. 30.

The SBEP will be offered in both Broward and Palm Beach counties while the NPEP will be offered in Broward County. The programs consist of nine sessions, each focusing on a particular aspect of growing a business or nonprofit. Starting in January and running through May, the sessions will be held every other week from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Applicants must be actively involved in running a business, be a key decision-maker and their company must have been established for at least three years and have five or more employees (or volunteers if the company is a nonprofit).

The programs are designed for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, presidents and executive directors of small businesses and nonprofit organizations. Graduates emerge with the skills and training needed to capitalize on business opportunities, implement best practice management and turn challenges into strategic advantage. Participants represent a variety of industries, including construction, technology, healthcare, fashion and law.

“What better way to kick off a new year than by taking time to learn and enhance your business skills,” said Jennifer Kovach, director of the Jim Moran Institute’s South Florida Operations. “With each incoming executive program class, we look forward to working with local business leaders who have taken that first step to expand their leadership abilities.”

Program graduates receive a certificate and have the opportunity to be a part of an ongoing peer roundtable. They are also encouraged to participate in workshops, conferences and other Jim Moran Institute events. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship’s South Florida Operations. Since 2009, the South Florida team has guided and graduated 23 classes through its executive programs.

About the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship

The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship cultivates, trains and inspires entrepreneurial leaders through world-class executive education, applied training, public recognition and leading-edge research.

Jim Moran was an automotive pioneer and an entrepreneur at heart, who at the age of seven, sold soda pop at sandlot baseball diamonds in Chicago. With a career that spanned more than six decades, he built an amazing chronicle of achievements in the automobile industry.

His vision for the Jim Moran Institute was to provide opportunities that would help others become more successful business owners. A 1995 contribution from Jim and Jan Moran and JM Family Enterprises established the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship at the Florida State University College of Business. Since 2011, further enhancements to the Jim Moran Institute and its outreach have been made possible by Jan Moran and The Jim Moran Foundation.
