Family Business Continuity Course

Are you a Family Business?  Are you interested in developing your family business continuity and sustaining the family business across generations?

As family firms evolve across generations, the needs of the family, the owners and the business will change. To address these evolving needs and to meet the family’s desire to become a multigenerational business, this programme provides family business leaders with the knowledge and skills to design appropriate governance structures for their business. The programme’s faculty are leading international family business experts who will share best-practice insights on the development of governance structures within the family, among the ownership group, and in the firm.
