2019 Family Enterprise Case Competition (FECC)

The University of Adelaide Business School’s Family Business Education and Research Group (FBERG) is sending a team of three MBA students to the USA in January 2019 to compete in the global Family Enterprise Case Competition (FECC).

Under the leadership of distinguished family business scholar Professor Pramodita Sharma, FECC has grown to become one of the best case competitions globally with 25 teams from 16 countries competing in 2019. FECC prepares participants to understand the critical issues that are unique to family enterprise by applying the knowledge and expertise they have developed in the classroom towards solving complex family business cases. During four tough rounds of competition, teams present their case to a distinguished panel of judges who will determine which group best understood, analyzed and presented the case.

“We’re proud to be the first team ever to represent Australia in the FECC and this demonstrates the University of Adelaide Business School’s commitment to excellence in family business education and research”, say Dr. Chris Graves, FBERG co-director.
