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”.
