Abstract

The University of Salford has a history of creating and sustaining an enterprise culture for students and staff and has recently launched a new vision: "By pioneering exceptional industry partnerships we will lead the way in real world experiences preparing students for life." These partnerships are embodied in our Industry Collaboration Zones (ICZs) which provide physical and virtual spaces for students, staff and industry partners to co-create and experiment. The ICZs offer unique, authentic learning opportunities aimed at better preparing our students for graduate employment and professional life. The Enterprise Team, based within Careers & Enterprise, makes a key contribution to student outcomes and employability. The team works in collaboration with industry, staff and student societies to offer wide-ranging business start-up support, from modules embedded in the curriculum to co-curricular activities such as enterprise masterclasses, up-skilling, business mentoring, seed funding, and business innovation competitions. This offering is available to our graduates for life. The work of the Enterprise Team and its collaborative approach was recognised in 2016 by the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services Award for Entrepreneurship.
