Small Business Charter Workshop

RS1137_UU-BELFAST-Oct2014-0476

Cultivating students for Enterprise and Impact

23 May 2017, University of Leicester

Business schools support students in enterprise and entrepreneurial education. They help them to develop the confidence to innovate, create and question as well as instilling attributes such as team working, managing deadlines and self-discipline which are the requirements for success. With knowledge in enterprise and entrepreneurial strategies, mentoring and support from the business school, our students are best placed to make a success of the businesses they start.

Join us at the Small Business Charter workshop to discuss the role business schools play in cultivating student enterprise within and outside of the business school curriculum.

The workshop will give the opportunity to:

  • Share examples of best practice about what is being done.
  • Have plenty of discussions and Q&A about what can be done to support students in their start up journey.
  • Learn more through case studies such as the development of an enterprise strategy at University of Leicester School of Business which puts the student voice at the centre; and how the University of Wolverhampton have managed the transfer of entrepreneurship education from the UK to Nigeria.
  • Gain an insight on perspectives from business start-ups, student enterprise champions and senior staff who will share their experiences and success stories.
