Brunel has won a Best Business Award for 'Best Higher Education Provider'.
The Best Business Awards are one of the UK’s highest profile awards, attracting a wide range of entries from across all sectors, from large international companies and public sector organisations to dynamic and innovative small and medium enterprises. The winners all have one thing in common – they are excellent at what they do.
Andrew Areoff, Chairman of the Judges said: "From world-class professors to the fastest man on the planet, Brunel University has successfully built a reputation for attracting the best.
"At a time when many other universities are making cuts, Brunel has spent £400 million in recent years in buildings and facilities while careful cost controls and value-for-money reviews have delivered 9% financial growth.
"Among advances are improved IT infrastructure, industrial collaborations, a new emphasis on staff well-being and sports facilities that have attracted Usain Bolt and the Jamaican track team for training."
Professor Steve Dixon, Brunel's Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Strategy and Development), said “we are delighted to receive this award which confirms Brunel's position at the forefront of UK Higher Education.
"This is the third award the University has received this year and is a tribute to the commitment and dedication of all our staff. It also reflects Brunel's strategic strength, confidence and forward-looking ethos at a time of great change for Higher Education."
