Research has revealed that the University of Lincoln is among the best in the country for graduates wanting to start their own business, producing almost 600 start-up businesses in recent years.
A study carried out by business financial platform Tide, revealed the universities that have produced the most graduate start-ups, including sole traders, since 2014/15.
The figures are sourced from the Higher Education Statistics Agency’s intellectual property, start-ups and spin-offs data, referring to graduates between the 2014/15 and 2019/20 academic years.
Lincoln is in the Top 10 Universities producing nearly 600 start-up businesses; the most in the whole of the East Midlands region and the sixth most of any university outside of London.
Ruchi Aggarwal, Associate Professor and Director of Business Development, Lincoln International Business School, said: “We are delighted the university has been recognised nationally for such an important agenda as the creation of start-up and growth mindsets via student businesses.
“The University is dedicated to working with students and organisations to find solutions that enhance the contribution of business to society.
“For our students, that means developing their business skills and knowledge so they can graduate and make a difference in industry as responsible leaders ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century. This accolade is testament to that focus and vision.”
