An article by Surrey Business School undergraduate Felicity Crane recently appeared in the Guardian, praising the virtues of the retail space offered to the University’s students.
The feature focuses on Studio, a retail incubator space on campus that allows students to test their business ideas by setting up shop and gauging interest before going to market. Offering the opportunity to trial and test business concepts with minimised risk, the space is currently home to several student businesses.
Studio is one of the projects managed by Surrey Enterprise, a company that offers paid placements for three Surrey students who run the business during their Professional Training year. Backed up by the University and other business advisors, Surrey Enterprise offers young entrepreneurs real business experience while highlighting the demands and responsibilities of running a company.
Felicity is currently Surrey Enterprise’s retail director and is studying for a BSc in Business and Retail Management.
