The EDHEC Family Business Global EMBA responds to the distinct needs of family firms, which represent 65 per cent of private sector enterprises in Europe. The objectives of this new programme are to provide next generation family business leaders with the management competences and confidence necessary to move into a Senior Management position or join the Board of Directors.

This new programme teaches participants how to provide excellent leadership, efficient governance, and to better understand the highly-competitive international marketplace. The programme is composed of three phases: Foundations of Business and Management Practices, including a trip to Singapore to learn from Asian and European family firms; Growth of the Family Business, including a "serious game" with a focus on family firm strategy; and Development of an Action Plan, during which each participant creates his or her own personal business strategy.

During the 15-month programme, participants will learn management theory from renowned academic experts and business innovators, and test their knowledge by participating in case studies executed in partnership with top family firms from around the globe. They will also put their leadership skills to the test as part of a boot camp - an experience that is sure to thrill and challenge participants.  

The EDHEC Family Business Global EMBA also offers an "Assessment Centre" to help each participant chart his or her personal development plan, regular coaching sessions and discussions with industry-specific mentors, and a media training course. These and other programme features promise a truly transformational experience to participants.

"EDHEC has long recognised the important role of family businesses in the global economy," said Olivier Oger, Dean of the EDHEC Business School. "We believe that by launching this one-of-a-kind MBA programme that we can provide additional support to these firms and the families who work to ensure their success. Our motto is 'EDHEC for Business' and the creation of this programme is perfectly in line with our strategy to be useful to business and to provide research-based solutions to the business innovators who fuel our economy and our imagination."
