Family Business Unit

The Nelson Mandela University Family Business Unit has been established, to assist family businesses to identify and avoid problems, solve complex family issues, and plan for changes in the current and future environments. The unit takes a strategic, growth-oriented approach to working with family businesses and their stakeholders. As such, the unit strives to assist business families in creating an ongoing legacy of entrepreneurship.

The Nelson Mandela University Family Business Unit will be working closely with leading scholars and family businesses to provide excellence in family business research and teaching, and to be a valuable resource for family business owners, advisors to family businesses, researchers, and policy-makers interested in the field.
