LEEDS University Business School has become one of only three in the country to be awarded a gold standard “Small Business Charter” Award for its role in helping to support enterprise.
The business school received the award yesterday at 10 Downing Street as part of the Small Business Charter Award scheme, which aims to encourage closer ties between business schools and small and medium-sized enterprises to help the economy to grow. Nationally, the scheme has already helped 4,700 students find work placements in Britain’s small businesses.
Professor Peter Moizer, the Dean of Leeds University Business School, said: “The award of this charter, which reflects the commitment and hard work ofstaff at the business school, will support our efforts to build on these foundations and will help us to move this work up a gear.”
The gold standard was also awarded to Aston Business School and Lancaster University Management School.
