Global Center for Family Enterprise (GCFE)
The Global Center for Family Enterprise (GCFE) focuses on the interplay between the “family” and the “enterprise”. In particular, its unique research focus lies in creating a deeper understanding of topics related to strategy, innovation, transgenerational entrepreneurship as well as governance in family enterprises. It is of utmost importance for the GCFE to take an interdisciplinary research approach by incorporating diverse perspectives (e.g. psychological, sociological, economic and 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 also the Center’s mission not only to create but to disseminate knowledge.
