Family Business This course is offered in the Fall Term only. It is held in English. This course, held by Prof. Thomas Zellweger, deals with all relevant aspects of family firms. It addresses students with family business background, students who have already been working in a family firm, and students who are interested in this topic in general. The main topics are family firm basics, succession, governance, finance, strategy, and transgenerational success. Selected guest speakers from well-known family firms, such as Michael Hilti, Thomas Schmidheiny, and others, enrich this course and strengthen the link to practice. Together with the international student group this leads to a fascinating and intense course.
