The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship extends application deadline for the small business and nonprofit executive programs
BROWARD, Fla. – The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, in Florida State University’s College of Business, has extended its application deadline for its Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) and Nonprofit Executive Program (NPEP) until May 6. Offered at no cost to participants, the programs are funded by The Jim Moran Foundation and Jim and Jan Moran. Qualified 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 with five or more employees (or volunteers if the company is a nonprofit).
The SBEP will be offered in both Broward and Palm Beach counties while the NPEP will be offered in Palm Beach County. The programs run July through November and consist of nine sessions that focus on a particular aspect of growing a business or nonprofit. They are held every other week from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
These executive programs are ideal 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. Past participants have represented a variety of industries, including construction, technology, healthcare, fashion and law.
“We are eager to offer business leaders who want to take their businesses to the next level the tools, advice and guidance they need from those who have been in their place before,” said Jennifer Kovach, director of the Jim Moran Institute’s South Florida Operations. “It is our goal to provide entrepreneurs and nonprofit professionals with essential knowledge to empower them for personal and professional growth.”
