In May 2013, research undertaken by the Association of Business Schools (ABS) showed that business schools play an important role in driving innovation and growth in the UK. But, while they are internationally recognised and successful at what they do, they can undoubtedly make an even greater contribution to our country’s economic progress through the graduates they produce, especially in terms of supporting our small and medium enterprises. In particular, the research found that business schools need to do more to integrate practice into teaching and bring experienced practitioners from the business community into their faculties.
