The course is designed for students who are interested in working in family firms (e.g. as entrepreneurs, managers, owners) or with family firms (e.g. as advisors, consultants, board members, bankers) or who come from a family firm background (e.g. next generation family owners). Given that family firms represent the most common type of business organization in most industries and countries, it is very likely students with a business school degree will work in or with family firms at some point in their careers. The overall purpose of this course is thus to help students develop a skill set that allows them to apply, in practice, appropriate models, theories and experiences presented during the course, as well as to critically examine the strengths and weaknesses of these models, theories and experiences.
