About Center

The CEIBS Centre for Family Heritage, founded by CEIBS under the founding sponsorship of the Kaifeng Foundation, is a knowledge centre committed to helping China’s family businesses go global and foreign enterprises better understand China’s family businesses.

Research and education on the management of family businesses have always been among CEIBS’ priorities. The Centre will pay special attention to the unique issues these businesses face, such as the family’s role in business development and succession planning and processes, as they try to stay competitive in today’s increasingly globalized business environment. By leveraging CEIBS’ academic excellence and education resources, the Centre aims to cooperate with thousands of alumni entrepreneurs in China as well as foreign family businesses and other academic institutions in order to create a high-end platform for research, and development of best practices regarding family entrepreneurship and wealth creation.
