“The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship program was comprehensive and addressed topics across every aspect of our small business. The lecturers provided practical consultations and networking in addition to the course content. I have implemented many aspects of the program, including online marketing, financial planning and evaluation, legal considerations, and overall business planning.”
