Family firms - no matter whether big or small - are all around. At the same time, those firms are substantially different from other types of firms, for instance with regard to their goals, strategies, and resources. For this reason, the Chair of Family Business is dedicated to research the behavior of German and international family firms. Our most current research projects, for instance, aim to advance our understanding of innovation, leadership and employee satisfaction, succession, inertia, business ethics and financing of family firms as well as family offices. We thereby focus on
- Family Offices
- financing of family firms
