Academic Relevance for Family Businesses and Business Families

IPAG Family Business Institute – IFBI – #ipagIFBI

The IPAG Family Business Institute (IFBI) wants to be the main reference point for FAMILY BUSINESS research, teaching and practice-transfer. Academic excellence is at the center but without neglecting practice relevance. We strive for “academic relevance” and aim to contribute to the field of Family Business engaging academics from all over the world, family business owners and managers, policy-makers, students, and the society at large.

To reach academic relevance the IFBI envisions to promote the development of multidisciplinary and multicultural research. The IFBI promotes research by also facilitating and nurturing collaboration and network at an international level. IFBI engages family business owners, managers, entrepreneurs, and practitioners in a continuous exchange and within a protected environment to discuss and learn from each other in connection with the most updated and relevant insights from research.
