EDHEC Family Business Centre Insights & Research



Despite the dominance of family firms, most academic research is not targeted to them and they remain largely unknown in the literature. Research regarding the specificities of management and governance practices of family firms is especially scarce.

The EDHEC Family Business Centre undertakes research on management quality within family firms, developing issues such as governance, management, succession, finance and family business role in society.

The centre's mission is to reconcile academic research with the pragmatism and sense of reality of firms, directors and management teams working within family businesses. It conducts world-class academic research and highlight its relevance to every-day management and firm-decision making.

4 research areas

  • Management quality and management practices
  • Governance Practices & Boards of Directors
  • Ownership Structures, Business Groups and Decision Making within Firms
  • Corporate Restructuring and the Value Gap
