March 28, 2012
Last year, BFF launched Business Family Fundamentals™, a series of much-anticipated self-served and self-paced online courses for business family members and the professionals working with them. Following the immediate success of these courses, BFF is now proud to announce the launch of a newer version, specially designed for educators and their collegial or university-level students.
With three stand-alone modules of approximately one hour each, these innovative courses will assist educators in helping their students better understand family business dynamics, as well as essential governance and managerial tools in family business systems. As in all versions of Business Family Fundamentals™, the new version features animated concepts, reflection sections, case study, optional audio explanations and dialogues, activities, quizzes, suggested readings, and a discussion and sharing space.
“We are proud to introduce this new series of flexible and innovative online modules. Our goal is to create awareness about ownership, managerial and governance issues faced by business families, and what better way to do so than by reaching the young generation of future leaders around the globe,” reveals Dr. Pascale Michaud, President of BFF. With this new version, specifically adapted to meet the needs of students, BFF sets a new quality standard in family business education worldwide. In order to cater to an even larger spectrum of students, this new version will soon be available in Spanish and French.
