Executive Education: Family Enterprises and Wealth (Online)

Thrive in a Complex Family Enterprise with Time-Tested Frameworks

Family enterprises are one of the well-known forms of business and are seen as the backbone of many strong economies around the world. With the number of family-owned businesses growing across the globe (KPMG International Report), large consultancies such as McKinsey, Deloitte, and EY have their own dedicated family enterprise teams to serve the demand.

Ownership patterns, family vision, succession, and many other exclusive features of family enterprises present unique challenges and opportunities in the governance and growth of these enterprises.

This program developed by Patricia Angus, an adjunct professor of business and managing director of Global Family Enterprise Program at Columbia Business School, is designed to be inclusive and effective for anyone currently part of a complex family enterprise, that includes family business owners, shareholders, family office professionals, or those who aspire to serve such enterprises. The program will empower participants to become a valued voice in the inner circle of the family ecosystem and play a critical role in the success of complex family enterprises (CFEs).
