The University of Bedfordshire Business School (UBBS) has been successful in its reassessment of its Small Business Charter accreditation.
The University is currently 1 of only 8 Business Schools to have achieved this accolade. The accreditation is a recognition of the significant engagement between UBBS, its stakeholders and the many Small and Medium Enterprises within the Bedfordshire region.
After rigorous assessment, the reaccreditation was presented to Dr Rhidian Lewis, Associate Dean Enterprise and Innovation at the University of Bedfordshire, who received the Small Business Charter award from Lord Young of Graffam at the recent Chartered Association of Business Schools’ Annual Conference.
Dr Lewis said: “I was delighted to get the news of our reaccreditation. It reflects the significant and continued effort of everyone involved in the work we do with Small and Medium Enterprises”.
Anne Kiem, Executive Director of Small Business Charter, said: “I would like to congratulate these first eight business schools who have been successful in their reassessment of the SBC award. We are pleased that they will continue to be key parts of this important network of schools committed to supporting small business, student enterprise and the local economy.
“The schools have made significant achievements over the past few years and they have ambitious plans for the future. I am looking forward to seeing the continued impact of their valuable work”.
The University of Bedfordshire strives to create a community where everyone feels valued, respected and welcome.
A successful application by a local company, Life Science Group Ltd (LSG), together with the University of Bedfordshire has resulted in £50,000 of funding from Innovate UK to complete a research project to improve Covid-19 testing.
A record number of staff and students nominated colleagues, peers and teams the University of Bedfordshire’s Vice Chancellor’s Student Experience Awards, with four winners receiving the Outstanding Student of the Year award.
