Welcome to the Northeastern University Center for Family Business 

Adding the complexities of a family and their needs to the dynamics of a competitive business can be a formidable challenge. The Center for Family Business helps business families identify and avoid potential pitfalls, solve complex interpersonal and family business issues, and plan for future family business success in an ever changing and increasingly more competitive environment.  

By providing high quality educational support, networking opportunities, and individual business counseling in a supportive and confidential environment, we help our members navigate the complex landscape of the family business to create greater harmony within the family and ensure continued success for the business.

Our programs and activities revolve around the needs and interests of family members and other stakeholders and participants in family businesses, including emerging leaders, successors, the senior generations, students and key non-family executives.

"The Center's core value is the privacy of its members. Our confidential, non-commercial group environment gives participants a safe, secure setting in which to learn and grow as family business leaders."

-Ted Clark, Director
