The Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise (INSEAD)

The Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise at INSEAD Business School helps improve the long-term performance and sustainability of family enterprises across industries all over the world. It conducts research, provides education and acts as an international platform for knowledge exchange, in order to support families in business in their endeavour to combine sustainable business growth and healthy family relationships.

With more than 20 years of expertise in the unique dynamics of family enterprises, the Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise is a leading international resource for family business.

The Wendel Centre for Family Enterprise has adopted a wider advocacy role by raising awareness and understanding of the importance of family enterprise as a business model: Family firms represent the most prevalent type of companies worldwide. Family firms are capable of outperforming other firms and they are proven to be among the most successful in the long-term.

In 1997, Wendel founded the Large Family Firm Chair and INSEAD offered the first Family Business MBA elective. Since then INSEAD has continuously generated research, thought-leadership and leadership programs for and about family businesses.
