Through this seminar students will develop an enhanced understanding of the evolution, current state, and envisioned future directions of family business research. A distinctive feature of the course is its emphasis upon recently-published review articles as the primary source of readings. As such, students will also leave the seminar with a stronger sense, in general, of what makes this type of article publishable and particularly compelling. Prerequisite: Registration in Business PhD Program or written permission of instructor. Approval of the Associate Dean, PhD Program is also required for non-PhD students.
