About the Center for Family Business
Adding the complexities of a family and their needs to the dynamics of a competitive business can be a formidable challenge. The Center for Family Business helps students learn the potential pitfalls, solve complex interpersonal and family business issues, and plan for future family business success in an ever changing and increasingly more competitive environment.
By providing high quality educational support and networking opportunities we help students understand the complex landscape of the family business to create greater harmony within the family and ensure continued success for the business.
Our programs and activities revolve around the needs and interests of students and other stakeholders and participants in family businesses.
