Family Business Development

Master course

Course Contents

This course deals with leading and developing family businesses; the most common type of organization in the world. The course addresses different organizational, strategic and governance aspects of this type of organization, including the role of owners, family and non-family managers, advisors, board members as well as employees in developing and renewing family businesses. We explore key issues related to the dynamics of different types of family business (e.g. both small and large, and private and publicly listed), such as entrepreneurship, strategy development, culture, succession and management, and more. This course takes an international perspective on these issues. The course is specially designed for those who are interested in working in (e.g. as owner and/or manager) or with (e.g. as advisor and consultant) family businesses.
