Kent Business School receives Small Business Charter award
Kent Business School (KBS) has recently officially received its Small Business Charter (SBC) award in recognition of the support it provides to student entrepreneurship and small businesses.
The SBC award is given to business schools which demonstrate excellence in supporting student enterprise and small businesses, as well as the local economy.
Explaining why KBS deserves this prestigious national kitemark, SBC Executive Director and Chief Executive of the Chartered Association of Business Schools, Anne Kiem says, “The progress made by KBS in building their relationships with local small businesses is bearing fruit and, given the strong relationships built with other stakeholders, is likely to bring effective support to even larger numbers of local businesses.”
The award was presented to representatives from KBS – including Vice-Chancellor and President – Professor Karen Cox, by Lord Young at an event at the House of Lords.
Several elements of KBS’ work were noted as impressive, in particular, ASPIRE, which provides KBS students and graduates with an excellent networking space to start up and develop their own businesses. KBS was also recognised for its work in assisting small businesses to recruit fresh talent.
Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Karen Cox, says,“This is great recognition will help further promote and enhance our work supporting our students, local businesses and the economic prosperity of the South-East.”
