Sitting within the Manchester Metropolitan Business School's Strategy, Enterprise and Sustainability (SES) Department, the Centre for Enterprise (CfE) transforms academic research into practical solutions to empower North West micro, small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) to develop, innovate and grow. The Business School is triple accredited (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA), placing us within a global elite of institutions for business education and research. We are also the UK's sector leader for degree apprenticeships, where we work in partnership with a number of blue-chip employers.
The Centre for Enterprise has collaborated with over 2,500 businesses and delivered over £45 million worth of programmes. In 2021/22 alone we directly supported 466 SMEs over 9 programmes. In 2022/23 we successfully secured a further £6.4 million to run SME training programmes specialising in Digital Innovation and Net Zero.
Our ethos is to transform lives, businesses and communities across the region. We focus on the support local business leaders need to upskill, embrace emerging technologies and boost productivity. Everything we do is with a view to provide SMEs with the tools needed to contribute to the economy, be more resilient and have the support they require to achieve their ambitions.
