Created to be a world-class learning experience that accommodates the busy schedule of small business owners, the Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) is ideal for CEOs, entrepreneurs, presidents of small businesses, and immediate successors of businesses. You will emerge a stronger leader ready to capitalize on business opportunities, implement best practice management, and turn challenges into a strategic advantage.

Application & Schedule

Thank you for your interest in the Tallahassee Small Business Executive Program (SBEP). Applications for Tallahassee SBEP Class XV can be found below. The program will run from August 2021 through November 2021. All of the following sessions are mandatory attendance. Thank you for committing to work "on" your business.

The Jim Moran Institute began implementing our in-person Reopening Plan on August 1, 2020 and will continue following the plan as long as needed. We will follow the guidance of college, university, local, state, and federal officials in each of our satellite locations to maintain the health and safety of our clients, staff, volunteers and guests. The fluidity of the situation is likely to require continuing flexibility. All program schedules and formats are subject to change and will be revised as needed.
