Cass hosts Entrepreneurial University Leaders Programme closing event
Senior leaders from UK universities visit Cass for end of programme celebration
Last week Cass Business School hosted the end of programme dinner for the National Centre for Entrepreneurship in Education (NCEE) and Universities UK 2012 Entrepreneurial University Leaders Programme.
This is a pioneering executive development programme for senior university leaders. It explores the concept and application of entrepreneurship within the university setting. Some 30 senior leaders from universities across the UK participated.
Cass attendees comprised Nick Badman, Visiting Professor and Chairman of the School's Centre for Entrepreneurship; Ehsan Razavizadeh, Regional Director of Cass Business School, MENA region; and Cass Associate Fellow Tony Eccles.
The guests were addressed by Nick Badman and by Eric Thomas, Vice Chancellor of the University of Bristol.
Speaking after the event Paul Hannon, CEO of the National Council for Education in Entrepreneurship, said:
"The NCEE was delighted that Cass was able to host an important dinner to celebrate the end of the final module of the 2012 Entrepreneurial University Leadership Programme. We were all impressed by the activities of the Centre for Entrepreneurship at Cass and the emphasis placed upon education for enterprise."
Nick Badman commented:
"The Entrepreneurial University Leaders Programme is a far sighted programme designed to develop an entrepreneurial mindset in the broadest sense amongst the next generation of high potential university leaders. As such Cass was honoured to support this event alongside Universities UK."
The NCEE (formerly the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship) is supported by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) to drive institutional change throughout the higher education sector. It works in partnership to create better conditions for long-term sustainable entrepreneurship in Higher Education.
