The Center aims to conduct quality academic research on Asian family businesses and entrepreneurship. It organizes research symposiums where related research papers from HKUST and other world-leading institutions are presented. Given the focus on ethnic Chinese family businesses, the Center conducts ongoing research to investigate the unique characteristics of these firms. Our faculty members have published widely in the area of family business in top-tier and family business specific journals. They have been called upon to share their insights in international conferences.
