About the SBC award

The Small Business Charter Award recognises business schools for engagement with small businesses. The Charter award is a valuable kitemark that helps to raise the profile of business schools and offers opportunities to network with like-minded organisations, share best practice, and discuss common challenges and possible solutions to overcome them.

There are currently 36 schools holding the SBC award and the assessment criteria is rigorous to ensure schools meet the quality mark. The assessment process involves completing an application form, followed by a visit by a panel to evaluate the evidence cited in the application. Business Schools will receive feedback and suggestions from experts on areas to enhance the business school’s current work.
