Winchester Business School Open Event
What does it do and how can it help your business?
Wednesday 24 June 2015, 5.30 - 7.30pm
Venue: Winchester Business School, West Downs Campus, Romsey Road, Winchester SO22 5HT (get directions)
I would like to invite you to see for yourself the Winchester Business School based at the West Downs Campus of the University of Winchester.
The Winchester Business School is a hub of knowledge, skills and information that can help improve and grow your business.
The event will showcase three Winchester Business School initiatives and give you the opportunity to share what you feel the Business School could do to help your business in the future. It will help to raise your awareness of the programmes, talent and initiatives that can be applied to help also invest in your people. Following an informal drinks and canapé reception, I will introduce staff, students and industry partners who will deliver short presentations on three main topics:-
1. Building a Chartered Business School status and what this means in supporting SME’s.
2. Responsible Leadership -The Executive Story. Provision of the MBA, DBA and Insight Management.
3. Degree Apprenticeships – New forms of industry/Business School collaboration – the CGI and Fujitsu story. The future of degree apprenticeships, funding and collaborative opportunities.
I am sure the above will be of great interest to you and there will be time to debate, question and share views amongst your peers and University lecturers and staff. I look forward to seeing you there.
Professor David F. Birks, Dean of the Faculty of Business, Law and Sport
