Theoretical Perspectives in Family Business Research 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsThe students will learn and discuss about the main theoretical perspectives in family business research and
explore the emerging trends in the field. The core of family business is the interaction between two
systems: the family and the firm. The combination of these contexts leads to specific characteristics that
we rarely see in other businesses, offering the unique opportunity to apply and extend conceptual
perspectives and theories originally developed in other fields and disciplines. The family business field is
also increasingly characterized by original efforts in theorizing new perspectives and exploring new
themes, offering a challenging opportunity to both advance the field and disseminate its findings in the
general debate in social sciences.
