Summer Programs at JIBS
JIBS offers a graduate-oriented summer course entitled Developing Dynamic Family Enterprises.
The course deals with different organizational and family aspects of this important type of organization, including the role of the family members and owners, family and non-family managers, advisors, board members as well as employees in developing and renewing family enterprises. We explore key issues related to governance, culture, strategic development, succession, professionalization, marketing, and control in family businesses. Two very important themes that run through the course are internationalization and entrepreneurship. This means that we pay particular attention to the challenges family businesses face in terms of internationalizing their business, as well as how they can establish and maintain an entrepreneurial approach to ownership and leadership across generations. The complete description can be found on their website.
