Family Business The course “Family Business” is offered only in fall semester and is held in English. This course given by Prof. Thomas Zellweger deals with all aspects of family business. It especially addresses students with family business background, students who have worked at a family firm, and students with a general interest in the topic. The main topics covered are basics of family business, succession, governance, finance, strategy, and transgenerational success. Selected presentations from our guest speakers from well-known family firms (Michael Hilti, Thomas Schmidheiny, and others) enrich this course and strengthen the link to practice. Along with the international student group, this results in a fascinating and intensive course.
