Small Business Charter

The Small Business Charter (SBC) award gives recognition to business schools that play an effective role in supporting small businesses, local economies and student entrepreneurship.

In order to achieve the Small Business Charter award, business schools undergo a rigorous assessment to determine the depth and effectiveness of their business engagement and business support.

The Small Business Charter was developed by Lord Young, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and the Chartered Association of Business Schools. In addition to providing business schools with a nationally recognisable kitemark award, the SBC also facilitates valuable knowledge sharing networks and promote the sector to ensure the value of the business knowledge, management expertise, and enterprise education offered by our business schools is maximised and utilised.
