BBS to deliver “mini-MBA” for SMEs as part of research initiative established by Prime Ministers of UK and India

Brunel Business School is helping develop management capacity for UK and Indian SMEs in the engineering and manufacturing sector in a project funded by the UK-India Education Research Initiative (UKIERI).  UKIERI was established by Prime Ministers David Cameron and Manmohan Singh.

One of the outcomes of the project is a workshop, not unlike a “mini-MBA”, for UK and Indian SMEs organised by Brunel Business School, Brunel University – London, along with the National Institute of Technology in Trichy, India and Uxbridge College which has been developed over the past 18 months and tested with various SME groups in India.  The workshop is open for registration and will take place on 15th May in Brunel Business School.

The joint workshop brings together UK and Indian SMEs to learn about the latest thinking in the development of future SME capacity. The workshop also provides an opportunity to explore mutual business opportunities for the workshop attendees.
