Sheffield Business School is delighted to be sponsoring the SME of the Year Award at the Sheffield Business Awards 2017.

As Britain’s largest modern business school, with more than 7,000 students, we are an intrinsic part of a vibrant city known for community, respect for diversity, choices, and quality of life. Our teaching and research addresses a range of modern sectors including banking, food, hospitality, tourism and events management.

It is our mission to deliver a broad range of education and research that is informed, influenced and enriched by our relationships with industry, business and the wider stakeholder community.

Our unique partnerships with businesses across the Sheffield City Region, as well as national and global companies, provides students with a powerful interchange of ideas, experiences, techniques, career opportunities and business connections.

This creates an environment dedicated to caring for, and nurturing the potential of, the individual as well as meeting the needs of employers.

We are focused on the employment prospects of our students and work in partnership with around 2,000 employers every year, through support including internships, work placements, graduate recruitment and projects. 

At Sheffield Business School we nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of our students and many of our graduates have gone on set up their own small company within our city region so this award holds particular significance for us.
