Details

The Leaders in Family Enterprise class will host Niki Russ Federman, co-owner and CEO of Russ & Daughters. For over 100 years, Russ & Daughters — and now the Russ & Daughters Cafe — has been an integral part of the history of New York City, a touchstone in the lives of generations, and the torchbearer of Jewish food in America.

Family businesses are the predominant form of business organizations in the world contributing an estimated 70-90% of the global GDP. In the United States, family enterprises contribute over 64% of GDP and generate 62% of employment. The greatest part of American wealth lies with family controlled firms. These firms are distinguished from other enterprises by the significant influence of the controlling family on the creation, continuity, mode, and extent of growth, and exit of a business. This course aims to prepare students to work effectively and professionally, in and with family firms, to launch and create cross-generational value and wealth in family firms.

Faculty, staff and students are welcome.
