Therefore to have a thorough understanding of the business world, students should study family enterprise. This course addresses the special issues of family-controlled firms including succession, finance, governance, strategy, family dynamics, culture, philanthropy and family offices. The course will involve guest lecturers, case studies, field and research assignments and presentations regarding family enterprise.
