Research Topics

Mapping the research topics at CeFEO illustrates the multifacted nature of the research carried out in the center.

Research at CeFEO is conducted through different research projects around three core dimensions: Entrepreneurship, Family, and Ownership, with particular interest toward Strategy, Governance and Accounting.

The different research projects at CeFEO involve one or more affiliated researchers, often with other scholars from JIBS and/or from other universities and business schools. CeFEO research strives to be interdisciplinary. For instance, historically at JIBS, researchers from business administration have been encouraged to collaborate with researchers from other disciplines (e.g., economics and commercial law) either within or across specific research projects. This approach creates unique breadth in the center’s research activities.
