Global Center for Family Enterprise (GCFE)
The Global Center for Family Enterprise (GCFE) focuses on the interplay of the “family” and the “enterprise”. In particular, its unique research focus lies in creating a deeper understanding strategy, innovation, transgenerational entrepreneurship as well as governance in family firms and its potential impact on family firms. It is of utmost importance for the GCFE to take an interdisciplinary research approach by incorporating diverse perspectives (e.g. psychological, sociological, economic, legal) to examine family enterprise behavior. The Center’s research is mostly evidence-based and its goal is to achieve academic excellence while researching highly relevant topics. It is our mission to not only create but especially disseminate our knowledge.
