Olivier OGER
Dean of EDHEC Business School 

The EDHEC Family Business Centre was created in 2012 with the support of prominent families
and family businesses. Our mission consists in promoting the Family Business model and sustaining
its growth. To succeed in this mission, we develop research which is focused on application
and business relevance, training programmes meant for family business leaders to enhance learning
and to strengthen the commitment of the leaders, as well as dedicated events to favour networking
and the exchange of best practices among family business leaders.

The EDHEC Family Business Centre was founded with the support of the Michelin Family

and of the following corporations:

Are you ready?

You will soon take charge! Leading a Business Unit, sitting on the Board or both.

You are elated… and you’ve got great ambitions and new ideas for the family business…

And you know that leading the growth and continuity of the family business is one of the most
difficult jobs in the world. When it comes to family businesses, filling the shoes of the all-powerful
leader is also far from easy.
Although you have seen the previous leaders struggle to balance family demands
and business requirements, the retiring generation will often be cherished as close to perfection
and you will always be judged on how you have integrated their vision and charisma,
their entrepreneurship spirit and their business acumen.

You may wish you had complemented earlier your on-the-job training with a stronger
academic background. Not only are you required to have a solid understanding of the key
management tools in finance, marketing and operations; you also need to feel comfortable in analyzing
and assessing the situation to develop new strategies and implement change; you need to be
familiar with the roles and responsibilities of Board members; you must understand the impact
of governance on performance.
EDHEC Family Business Global Executive MBA has especially been designed to help you achieve
these goals and more, with a particular focus on the key requirements of modern family businesses,
among which stand the Competitive Imperative, Leadership Excellence and Efficient Governance.
The programme has been carefully crafted by experienced faculty and Family Business experts to:

• accelerate your learning by exposing you to hundreds of business situations;
• prepare you to immediately put into practice the content of each module;
• help you fill any leadership competency gap you will identify at the beginning of the programme.

Moreover, you will do that with a group of people you can trust: people who have exactly
the same issues, the same objectives, the same needs to develop. You will all share remarkably similar
stories, yet in your own unique family business environment. We bet some of your fellow participants
may well become not only friends but your most trusted advisors through all your life.
EDHEC Family Business Global Executive MBA is a life-changing journey.
Is it for you? Are you ready? Let’s meet and find out.

meeting the triple requirement
of modern family businesses!

The ultimate goal for a family firm is to continue being so, i.e. to remain as a company
that successfully transmits itself to the next generation. In a more complex, more global, more competitive
and more uncertain environment, the modern family firm is confronted with a triple requirement:
Competitive Imperative, Leadership Excellence and Efficient Governance.

Family business

in business

Family business




Competitive Imperative

Efficient Governance

Leadership excellence

Being competitive requires analysis
of the environment and anticipation of
changes. It means reinforcing in the production
cycle those critical elements contributing
to create the value that is recognised
by the market. It is the resolve to strengthen
one’s position through innovation. It is the
implementation of the strategy with agility.
Whatever the degree of diversification
or internationalisation they present, Family
Businesses are often deeply rooted in
their original trade and exhibit strong
prudential behaviours. It is then legitimate
to put the issue of openness at the heart
of their strategy. This openness needs to be
evaluated, in terms of products, technology,
territories and competencies.

In Family Businesses, when the Family
and the Business develop, the number
of actors and interests increases; decisions can
no longer be taken in informal gatherings.
We need to create appropriate and efficient
governance to separate and unite at
the same time the voices of shareholders,
family members and managers. Boards need
to be well crafted, roles and responsibilities
of Board Members need to be shared and
understood, including those members
external to the family who can reinforce
the supervising authority’s mission.
We need to look at issues from multiple
perspectives and constantly strengthen
cohesion and commitment from
the family owners.

Leadership excellence is about defining a
common ambition for the business, growing
people and helping them develop.
Complexity enters the picture when we think
about building the family firm’s growth strategy
and in the meantime safeguarding the family’s
cohesion and optimising the ownership
structure to strengthen the continuity options.
As a family business leader, you are responsible
for the values of the company and the impact
of your company on the community at large.
We will help you to develop leadership skills
to define clear goals and boldness,
and to acquire a strong sense of self-confidence.
You will then be able to welcome change,
challenge the existing rules of the game
and encourage new ideas.

the family, the business and the ownership

and responses are unique to each
family business, we are also convinced
that the majority of issues are similar
to all family businesses.

Electives will be offered, such as:

the journey, sharing best practices
among themselves and with other
prominent actors in the family
business community.


.A prominent Family Business
speaker will host the Gala Dinner

Leadership Excellence:
your leadership
development programme

Efficient management is the art of gaining maximum performance with
minimum input. And many a company fails, efficiently, meeting solely
short-term goals.
Leaders recognise the importance of a long-term vision. They boldly welcome
and impulse change to pursue ambitious objectives. With or without charisma,
but with respect and integrity, they personalise their vision and transform groups
of individuals into motivated teams. For their followers, leaders are a source
of inspiration and commitment.
For family businesses,
leadership excellence is linked to the
legitimacy of the leader. As a member
of the family or external to the family,
legitimacy comes from competencies in
terms of managerial practices as well
as the capacity to embody, share and
maintain the long-term values coming
from the family business history.

1. Assessment Centre

3. Coaching Sessions

Coaches will intervene at each stage
of the programme through on-campus
peer-development sessions to help
participants develop and evolve in
their agenda.

4. Dialogue between
Coaching and Mentoring

At the start of the programme, each
participant will benefit from a personal
appraisal through a proprietary assessment
centre developed by EDHEC for family
business leaders.

Participants will be asked to identify
a mentor within the family firm so that
follow-up can be ensured between
coaches on-campus and mentors

2. Individual Development Agenda

5. Peer-Leader Exchange

With the help of coaches, participants
will draw up their individual agenda
for development throughout
the duration of the programme.

A specific shadowing experience will
help participants reflect on their beliefs
and behaviours, and receive feedback
from peers.


Additionally, 2 workshops
will help participants consolidate
assertiveness, independence, self-regard
and self-actualisation.

6. Media Training Workshop
in Singapore
During the two-week module
in Singapore, participants will be exposed
to a full-day media training workshop
to explore posture and ease in front
of journalists.

7. DRIVE: Leadership
Bootcamp in the UK
There are numerous models of Leadership
Training and our way to express our model
is through the simple acronym DRIVE
Development, Responsibility, Integrity,
Vision and Excellence.


teaching methods

The content of the programme is important; so is the learning process!
How you learn is as important as what you learn and we want to make sure that you can
apply immediately your newly acquired knowledge.


You will also learn from the wealth of experience which exists
in the classroom. Faculty will reveal such experience and
encourage exchange of best practices and collective learning.
Yet people may have different viewpoints. Arguing with
others is an essential part of acquiring knowledge. In order
to convince others, you need to better articulate your own
arguments and better understand your own thoughts.

The number of real cases to which you will be exposed
throughout the programme far exceeds the opportunities you may
have in day-to-day life. You will learn from other countries,
from other industries, from situations you may not encounter
in your own environment. Business games such as ‘MARKSTRAT’
and ‘PANDORA’ will also put you in tough decision-making
situations. The richness of the methodology accelerates
your business experience as a leader.

The emphasis throughout the programme is on
the Family Firm as a whole, rather than on individual disciplines.
Functional disciplines are covered during the first three
to four weeks, in order to harmonise levels of understanding.
Thereafter the emphasis is on strategic analysis and decision: sharing
a broad view of the business and understanding the interaction
with the overall context; creating value for the firm’s various
constituencies: the customer, the employees,
the family members and the shareholders.

The EDHEC Family Business Global Executive MBA
is all about bridging the gap between theory and practice. Alternating
between the classroom and your place at work, you will construct
your own bridge through the “implementation reports” and
the projects, where you will apply what you have learnt to
your very own work environment.

We will provide a diversity of methods through lectures,
cases, simulations, coaching and relevant company visits.
We will organise peer-leader exchange, various workshops
and a Leadership Bootcamp. You need to provide
commitment and engagement to make the programme
worthwhile to you and to your fellow participants.
Engagement is also the necessary ingredient to make this
overall experience a lasting reservoir of fun memories.
