Change the world

Family Business Unit

The Nelson Mandela University Family Business Unit boasts the largest grouping of family business researchers in South Africa. All four founding members hold a doctoral degree in the area of family business. The unit's researchers are nationally and internationally recognised through publications, award-winning dissertations and papers, and regular attendance at conferences around the world.

The founding members have the knowledge and experience to provide management consultation on family and general business matters. These individuals have a wealth of experience in the field, directly through their involvement in a family business, and indirectly through practice as advisors, trainers and consultants to family businesses. Their affiliates are equally experienced in their areas of specialisation.
