We regularly host Ph.D. students to spend a visiting research period at JIBS in our rich research environment with the goal contributing to the development of family business and ownership research.


UPDATE (September 2021): We accept visits for periods between 1 and 6 months. Shorter visiting periods are still not possible.

The visiting students are part of the academic life of the CeFEO. They actively participate to the research seminars and workshop organized by the centre and present their research project in a CeFEO Seminar organized during the visiting period.

The visiting student have access to JU Library resources and receive an office space for the time of the visit (to be arranged per time).

CeFEO does not finance or provide any grant to the visiting student. The entire cost of the visit should be covered by the visiting student and their own university.
