Every year, Ph.D. students spend a visiting research period at JIBS in our rich research environment with the goal contributing to the development of family business and ownership research.


In September 2021, CeFEO initiated a new visiting program for PhD Students.

For the duration of their visits, doctoral students receives a CeFEO Affiliation, spelled out as “Visiting PhD Student at Centre for Family Entrepreneurship and Ownership (CeFEO); Jönköping International Business School (JIBS), Sweden”, and they have full access to the resources of the centre and the opportunity to engage in a meaningful conversation with the CeFEO members.


Doctoral students are invited to apply to the CeFEO Visiting PhD Student program.
