Family businesses are the oldest and most common form of business. Yet in today’s fast-changing, volatile, and global business environment, family businesses face unique challenges that are often complicated by factors specific to their structure and to families’ traditions, cultures, and interests.
Designed and delivered by the faculty who created Columbia Business School's official Family Business Program that enables students to understand all aspects of owning, managing, and working with family businesses, this three-day executive education program is delivered by faculty and adjunct professors with decades of experience advising family-owned firms.
Members of enterprising families who own shared assets, including operating businesses, family offices, investments, philanthropy, and more will learn how to view their business situation through time-tested frameworks that provide best practices and lessons learned from academia and practice.
By learning together, family members will be able to lead all that they do together more effectively, efficiently, and harmoniously. This program which takes place in New York City and on the Columbia University Campus is designed to draw families from around the globe who share common challenges across cultures.
