Did you know that family businesses across the world drive development in each region and country? Did you also know that they perform better in sales and return on revenue than nonfamily firms, and that they are more innovative and enterprising? But, all of this is usually true if they manage to transition from one generation to the next. And that is their greatest challenge. How can they transcend the family enterprise from generation to generation?

This Professional Certificate program focused on entrepreneurship and family businesses answers this and other questions, while providing you with the necessary key drivers to assure the successful transcendence of your business over time.

Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly common for large family businesses, such as the Norwegian family firm LEGO, to seek a new profile for family or nonfamily CEOs, who not only master knowledge of finance and business administration, but also have a robust profile in knowledge, skills and experience in family businesses. Therefore, the family entrepreneurship courses of this professional certificate program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to:

  • Lead and manage family enterprise;
  • Develop the generation of millennials to become good owners and young entrepreneurs;
  • Develop an entrepreneurial mindset;
  • Establish family business governance bodies and be able to apply sustainability and succession models;
  • Be enterprising and innovate inside and outside the family business creating a strategic management.
