Universities have developed family business centers during the past two decades as they and others realized the importance and complexity of family businesses. However, there has been no comprehensive investigation of the unique educational needs of family businesses. The purpose of this study is to explore this subject and to suggest particular areas in family business education that require attention. The study measures the perceptions of university-based family business program directors about educational issues relevant to family businesses. It also provides important insights and information about the current state of family business education.
