Family Business Club

The Family Business Club is open to all students with an interest in family business. Students whose families own a family enterprise, who plan to work as a non-family executive within a family business, or who plan to advise family-run companies benefit from frequent lunch meetings with their peers.

Roundtable discussions and workshops take place on a variety of family business topics. Speakers and webinars provide students with an understanding of family business best practices.

For more information, please contact Cooper Biersach, Director of the Family Enterprise Center.
