Family Corporation

Managing a family corporation presents a unique set of issues and challenges, borne out of the interplay between family dynamics and business systems. Business goals may at times run counter to the objective of promoting healthy family relationships (and vice-versa). Because of this, only few family businesses survive from one generation to the next.

The Asian Institute of Management is pleased to announce the:

Managing Family Corporations Program

“A Healthy Family in a Healthy Business

A product of three decades of research the AIM Famcor Program provides family members and professional managers an understanding of the nature & dynamics of families in business, and tools for maintaining the continuity and health of the family corporation. Through lectures, case discussions on successful Asian family corporations, and workshops, participants will leave the program with insights and action plans for effectively managing the family corporation.
