UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 17 MARCH 2021
Birmingham City University’s Business School has been reaccredited with the Small Business Charter award after continually demonstrating excellent work in supporting small businesses, the economy and student entrepreneurship.
The Small Business Charter is an award for the UK’s world-class business schools, which undergo a rigorous assessment to determine the effectiveness of their business support, entrepreneurship education and engagement with their local economy.
Professor Deborah Lock, Head of Birmingham City Business School at Birmingham City University, said: “We take pride in playing a pivotal role in the University’s vision of being a university for Birmingham. To be awarded the Small Business Charter once again is a fantastic achievement for the School.
Birmingham City Business School’s ‘Promoting Sustainable Performance’ project has been awarded ‘exemplary status’, with findings from the project being used as the basis for practical interventions that have supported over 1,000 SMEs in the West Midlands, Canada, and Indonesia. The project has also helped the business school to develop an executive education programme for SME owners and managers.
