Chartered Association of Business Schools

The Chartered Association of Business Schools runs the Small Business Charter – a national award which recognises business schools which demonstrate excellence in supporting student enterprise, small businesses and the local economy.

With 4.9 million SMEs trading across the UK, the skills associated with management, innovation and entrepreneurship are of vital importance. We’re supporting the EIBF because it will give undergraduate engineering students the opportunity to develop the skills needed to add value within local and regional economies.

We will work to raise awareness of the EIBF with business schools throughout the UK committed to supporting student entrepreneurial activities.
