Help the Business School respond to our local needs

The University of Exeter Business School has been getting closer to the business community in the South West region during the last two years. For example, academics carry out research and exchange knowledge for mutual benefit. Businesses recruit students for work placements and projects, supply their goods and services or take part in workshops and masterclasses either online or in person.

As part of this new project, the Business School would really welcome the views of local businesses, entrepreneurs and social enterprises about their experiences and perceptions of the Business School. This is a great chance to tell the University of Exeter Business School how it can support local enterprise and innovation most effectively and use its insight and knowledge so that together we can help local businesses to develop and grow
