LSBU has been given the award for Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards.
The accolade celebrates the entrepreneurial support offered to students, graduates, staff and the local community led by LSBU’s Research, Enterprise and Innovation team, based at the Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation, with support from academics across LSBU’s seven Schools.
The judging panel commended the University, saying:
“LSBU has demonstrated how a vision can be translated into action, within curricular and through the work of its staff and more widely across their local, national and international networks. We are particularly impressed by the number of students engaged, the breadth of enterprising activity the University is involved in and the depth of employer engagement. LSBU shows a truly entrepreneurial approach to its pivotal role in the community and academic endeavours.”
LSBU’s victory was witnessed by more than 1,200 people who gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane.
