IE Center for families in business
The IE Center for Families in Business represents IE’s commitment to adding value to business families on a global scale.
This process relies on over a decade of excellence in research in the field of family businesses, a management team with extensive experience and effective training in classrooms where leaders of great business families have studied. An authentic community of strategic reflection, whose vision extends from the family to the world.
All of this is complemented by IE’s pragmatic focus, and enriched by the emphasis on the humanities, digital transformation and entrepreneurship.
