The School of Business and Economics (SBE) has been presented with a Small Business Charter (Silver) Award, in recognition of the role it has played in helping to kick-start British enterprise.

SBE is one of the first business schools to be granted chartered status. The award was presented to the School earlier this month at a celebration held at 10 Downing Street, London.

The Small Business Charter recognises those business schools that are best able to demonstrate their commitment to the small business sector, and then makes the schools more visible and accessible to both small businesses and students.

Julie Holland, Director of the Glendonbrook Centre for Enterprise Education and leader of the School’s bid, said: “We are delighted with our award, which reflects the School’s commitment to the small business sector. The award is very significant, as chartered status will allow us to access funds to help us grow our support for existing small and new business start-ups.  We are honoured to be one of the first business schools to be granted chartered status.”
