Partnership with Santander funds SME Growth Club, visiting Fellows at Cambridge Judge

Santander UK is helping a new SME Growth Club to assist British enterprises in the development of their management and processes to enable growth. The bank's Breakthrough support programme partnership with the Cambridge Judge Business School will fund new visiting Fellows over the next three years, as well as offering cooperation on seminars, conferences and other projects. The new UK SME Growth Club will launch in the coming months and it will engage with 10 SMEs from the Cambridge cluster, elsewhere in East Anglia and London. A member of the Cambridge Judge faculty will visit each company to assess their needs and help draw up action plans to tackle strategic challenges. The aim of the Club is to significantly enhance the performance and competitiveness of the companies by developing their managerial capability, setting attainable objectives and monitoring progress through key performance indicators. Santander will fund a Santander Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Cambridge Judge, which will enable academic visitors in business and finance to appear at at Cambridge University and provide a lecture and seminar series. The new arrangement follows a partnership agreement signed in 2008 through the bank's Santander Universities Global Division, which has benefited the school's students and academics by providing funding for Fellows, scholarships, entrepreneurial activities and other projects. As part of the City Speakers Series of the Master of Finance programme at Cambridge Judge, Steve Pateman, executive director and head of UK banking at Santander UK, spoke at the school on 22 January on the economy and the role of banking.
