After over 4 years of assisting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the North West of England by placing students and graduates in companies to carry out short-term paid internships, the highly successful Unite with Business project has now come to an end.

Being part of Salford Business School’s business services offer, Unite with Business is also a great example of regional collaboration between six universities: the University of Salford, University of Central Lancashire (lead project partner), University of Chester, University of Bolton, University of Cumbria and Lancaster University.

Unite with Business was funded by the European Regional Development Fund and supported over 1800 businesses and created over 470 jobs.

Small Business Charter

Salford Business School is celebrating after receiving the Small Business Charter Award at a special ceremony at 10 Downing Street, in recognition of the role it has played over the years in helping to kick-start British enterprise.

The Small Business Charter Award is a new scheme that recognises the great success achieved by British business schools in terms of their engagement with small and medium sized enterprises.

Salford Business School’s award demonstrates the confidence that the School has in its engagement with Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and the support it provides to students in terms of developing their employability as well as ambitions to become entrepreneurs and start their own business.
