Grow your business
Grow your business by collaborating with our academic staff. Not only will have access to the latest research, knowledge exchange and creativity, but we can help you explore potential funding/investment opportunities through such partnerships.
Through participation in applied consultancy projects, our students can provide you with research-based evidence to enable you to make future strategic business decisions. Alternatively, if you are exploring the prospect of growing your staff base but are unsure if now is the right time, then a student internship offers you the opportunity to identify the added value before committing to a permanent solution.
The Enterprise Programme supports students, staff and recent graduates to develop innovative business ideas and launch viable start-ups, as well as to build skills for the future world of work.
We are proud sponsors of the annual Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) Awards. The awards aim to encourage the efficient use of resources, enhance the competitiveness of businesses, improve environmental performance, and support the wider goals of sustainable development including social benefits through community and staff involvement. The Management School sponsors the SME Management category at the Awards, recognising SMEs with the strategic vision and management systems that enable them to continuously improve their contribution to Scotland’s sustainable development.
The School supports the annual HEAT awards (Highlighting Entrepreneurship All Together), a “Dragons’ Den” style competition where Management School staff take on the role of one of the ‘dragons’, as well as provide follow-on support to the winners. The event is organised by Forth Valley area Business Gateways.
“My interactions with The University of Stirling have been very positive, the advice and guidance thus far has instilled confidence in both myself and my business concept, it has provided me with some clarity, direction and greater confidence to grow the business.”
