Center for Family Business of the University of St.Gallen (CFB-HSG)
Founded in 2004, The Center for Family Business of the University of St.Gallen (CFB-HSG) has established itself as a nationally and internationally active expert in family-owned businesses in the areas of research, teaching and training / transfer. The CFB-HSG’s work involves initiating, managing, promoting and running training and transfer programs, research projects and courses.
The main research topics at our Center include value and performance management, strategic entrepreneurship and succession in family firms. It is our goal to develop these research topics in an integrated manner so as to develop insights relevant for scholars, teachers and practitioners. We are convinced that the close interaction between academic and business communities creates the most novel and creative research insights that are at the same time of high relevance to practice.
