Mission Statement

Mission Statement 

The Columbia Family Business Program provides a global community of students, alumni, executives, and owners with essential knowledge and critical skills to be effective leaders, successful managers, knowledgeable advisors, and informed beneficiaries of family-controlled enterprises.

The Program is committed to delivering broad-based educational programs, new insights through original research, and opportunities to convene in a safe environment for serious reflection and inquiry.

Family businesses are the heart of the world’s economy and society, and our goal is to help their major decision makers and stakeholders have a positive impact on business, financial, civic and philanthropic sectors.
