The Highly Commended status for Enterprising Learning Provider of the Year was presented to London South Bank University (LSBU) at the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE) Celebrate Enterprise awards ceremony at the House of Lords.
“It clearly demonstrates what can be achieved when enterprise learning is embedded into the curriculum, and rolled out through interactive extra-curricular programmes, with the support of our academics.”
Part of the REI team based at the Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation, the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute delivers skills support, competitions and start-up programmes to help students and graduates to develop their skills and drive forward new, innovative ideas.
Professor Mike Molan, former Dean of the School of Business and Pro Vice Chancellor for Enhancement, said:
“I am delighted that LSBU has been awarded Highly Commended status in the Enterprising Learning Provider of the Year category. The award is recognition of the fantastic work that has been done across the institution, particularly through collaboration with the Business School, in supporting student-led enterprise and start-ups, working with local SMEs in providing support and guidance for business growth and project work, and in providing students with opportunities to engage with live enterprise projects and gain invaluable hands on experience of working with business and applying their problem solving skills.”
