Kent Business School is awarded the Small Business Charter
Kent Business School has received the Small Business Charter due to the support it gives to small businesses in the region and its work encouraging student entrepreneurship.
The Small Business Charter (SBC) award is the national kitemark awarded to business schools by small businesses in recognition of their excellence in supporting student enterprise, small businesses and the local economy.
Speaking about this exciting news, University of Kent Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Karen Cox, enthuses, “It is wonderful news that the University has achieved the Small Business Charter award. The University prides itself on its engagement with the community, the importance of its civic role in Canterbury, Medway and across Kent and the support it provides for student entrepreneurship. This accreditation is great recognition of the success Kent Business School has had so far in all these areas and will help further promote and enhance our work supporting our students, local businesses and the economic prosperity of the South-East.”
SBC assessors found various elements of Kent Business School’s operations impressive, including its Accelerator Space for Innovation and Responsible Enterprise (ASPIRE) which provides an excellent networking space for students and graduates starting up their own businesses. Kent Business School was also applauded by the SBC for the support it gives small businesses in the region and the significant local economic benefit it provides.
The Executive Director of the Small Business Charter and Chief Executive of the Chartered Association of Business Schools, Anne Kiem, comments, “We congratulate Kent Business School on achieving the Small Business Charter award. The progress the business school has made in building their relationships with local small businesses is bearing fruit and, given the strong relationships they have built with other stakeholders, is likely to bring effective support to even larger numbers of local businesses.”
