Center for Family Business

Gruppenbild CFB
Global Family Business Index


The CFB-HSG is an international center focusing on research, teaching, and executive education in the context of family firms. Thereby, these three pillars represent a self-inforcing circle so that none of the activties has to be seen in separation.

Top 25 business schools for family business in the world
The University of St.Gallen ranked in the top 25. A particular reward for our CFB.

Hosting Prof. Bill Schulze at our CFB
From 8.3. to 8.6. we will host Prof. William Schulze as visiting professor at our center. He is researching on entrepreneurship and family businesses. Bill will further offer the doctoral seminar "Toward a theory of the closely held firm".

Main activities

Our main activities lie in the fields of research on family firms, as well as teaching and executive education for persons that plan to be or already are either directly involved in family firms or working as consultants and service providers for family firms.
