MGMT 4895-001: Special Topics
Tuesdays @ 5:00PM - 8:00PM in BUSN 214
Topic: Family Business
Open to all business and non-business students
This course is designed for individuals seeking to understand the unique management challenges associated with running and growing the family firm, and to develop the skills to be an effective contributor as an employee, owner, business partner, advisor or consultant to such organizations.
Family firms comprise the majority of private and public companies worldwide. Despite their prevalence, little attention is given to their unique challenges, strengths and weaknesses. We will be touching on a variety of issues, from relationship management amongst family members, to conflict resolution, succession planning, sibling rivalry, dealing with entitlement, developing family values, hiring and promoting family and non-family employees, and wealth creation and distribution, to name a few. The focus of this course is on small and medium size family enterprises where these issues are more salient and might impede firm performance and growth.

This course focuses on the unique challenges faced by social entrepreneurs around the design, startup, and growth of for profit mission driven entrepreneurial ventures aimed at simultaneously creating private and public wealth. More specifically, we will be studying the application of the mindset, principles, strategies, and tools and techniques of entrepreneurship to the social sector, with the aim of developing creative solutions to society’s vexing problems, in a financially sustainable way. Topics will include the recognition of social opportunities, developing a business or strategic plan for a startup or ongoing social venture, measuring impact and scaling.
