Jim Moran Institute Accepting Applications for the South FL Executive Programs

Fort Lauderdale, FL — The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, part of the Florida State University College of Business, is accepting applications for its Spring 2023 Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) and Nonprofit Executive Program (NPEP) held in South Florida. Offered at no cost to participants, the programs are funded by The Jim Moran Foundation and Jan Moran and her late husband, automotive pioneer Jim Moran. The application deadline is Friday, September 30. 

The SBEP is designed for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, and presidents of small businesses, while the NPEP is for executive directors, presidents, and CEOs of nonprofit organizations. Graduates emerge with the skills and training needed to turn challenges into strategic advantages, capitalize on business opportunities and implement best practice management. Participants represent a variety of industries. 

“Our unique programs give these leaders real world examples and tactics they can use to take their organizations to the next level,” said Jennifer Kovach, director of the Jim Moran Institute’s South Florida Operations. “There is a great deal that small business and nonprofit leaders can learn from one another and we enjoy connecting and collaborating with these groups each session.” 

“I enjoyed the opportunity to learn from my classmates,” said Ashley Walker of Smoothie Me Please, who is a graduate of the SBEP. “The times when everyone would share personal testimonials and how they overcame them were the truly magical moments.”  

The Executive Programs consist of nine sessions, each focusing on a specific aspect of growing and managing a business or nonprofit. Starting in January and running through May, the sessions are held once every two weeks from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  

Applicants must be actively involved in running their organization, be the key decision-maker and their company must have been established for at least three years and have three or more employees (or volunteers for nonprofits). The program will be held at the Jim Moran Institute’s office in Broward County. 

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. Since 2009, the South Florida team has guided and graduated 41 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 7, 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.
