Program

IFERA 2015 Regional forum starts off with an enriching pre-conference program for doctoral students. This is followed by a two day academic program featuring paper presentations, discussion sessions and poster sessions. The last day of the conference invites academics to interact with family businesses in the Family Business Day. This is the chance for academics to learn new insights from the field and also bounce off their conceptual ideas in engaging conversations with family business leaders and members.
