Global Center for Family Enterprise (GCFE)
The Global Center for Family Enterprise (GCFE) is uniquely positioned to conduct research on a broad range of topics such as succession, strategy, innovation and governance in family firms. In particular, we are interested in understanding better the interplay between the “family” and the “enterprise”. It is of utmost importance for the Center to take an interdisciplinary approach taking into account various perspectives (e.g., psychological, sociological) to examine family enterprise behaviour. The Center’s research is mostly evidence-based and its goal is to achieve academic excellence while also researching highly relevant topics. Finally, the Center has a strong desire to create and disseminate knowledge. In the following, we outline some of the Center’s current research areas.
