Working with Business
By using our expertise in teaching, practice and research we aim to support and inspire great leadership in business: addressing today's challenges, educating tomorrow's business leaders, and nurturing the development of new innovations to take your business into the future.
Public and private sector expertise
We've brought together experts from the public and private sectors with track records in teaching, professional practice and research in areas including management and leadership development, strategy, risk management, innovation, marketing, finance and accounting, and human resource management.
Understanding your business needs
The university is already the leading provider of professional education for the public services in Kent, but we also have an established track record of working with small and medium companies from start-up onwards. This means that whatever the size of your organisation, you can be confident that we provide the highest standards whilst also being able to understand your particular business.
The university wants to support the regional economy by providing regional businesses and public sector entities with the professional support they need to address competitive and economic challenges effectively. Examples of such support include:
Assisting the Folkestone Harbour Company in an extensive public consultation process with regards to their plans to redevelop the Folkestone Seafront, including 5 public consultation meetings, a two-week exhibition, a paper and online survey and several local school events.
Assisting the East Kent Local Strategic Partnership in evaluating the impact of the high speed domestic train service between London and East Kent on key drivers of the East Kent economy.
The Department of Leadership and Management Development, provides consultancy services in the areas of leadership, management and organisational development to clients in the UK and Europe.
Professional approach to Business Services
When we've asked businesses what they want from working with a university, they've told us they would like it to be easier find the right people to talk to. The Business Services team will help you to find the right people to talk to, quickly and efficiently, so that you can get on with the job in hand.
