Abstract

This study has been undertaken on behalf of the Midlands Enterprise Universities (MEU), a consortium of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that includes Birmingham City, Coventry, De Montfort, Derby, Nottingham Trent, Lincoln and Wolverhampton Universities. The consortium has a lead role in the entrepreneurship agenda for the Midlands regions, in support of the Government's Midlands Engine for Growth initiative. This report investigates the nature and extent of enterprise and entrepreneurship education and business support activities undertaken by the seven members of the MEU consortium across the East and West Midlands regions.

This is the first of two reports, to be accompanied by an extended Executive Summary covering the findings from both reports alongside overall conclusions and policy recommendations. This report sets out the context for the project, including: a summary of relevant national policy; a review of national and international literature; a detailed assessment of secondary data pertaining to enterprise and the wider labour market across the two Midlands regions; and analysis of data on the student populations, graduate destinations, start-up and spin-out activity for the seven Midlands Enterprise Universities. Report 2 will then summarise the findings from an information collection exercise and in-depth interviews with colleagues engaged in enterprise and entrepreneurship education.
