DCU Centre for Family Business are proud to present their first in a series of research seminars, Empirical and Theoretical Trends in Family Business Research, delivered by Dr. Clay Dibrell, in DCU Business School, on Wednesday 13th September.

The series, hosted by Professor Maura McAdam, Director of Entrepreneurship and Professor of Management at DCU, aims to explore different areas of family business, with a view to developing new ideas. Invited scholars will discuss their academic work and share their knowledge and reflections on various different research topics within family business.

Dr. Clay Dibrell is Professor of Management, Executive Director of the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and holder of the William Gresham, Jr., Entrepreneurial Professorship at The University of Mississippi. He is also a US Fulbright Scholar.

This presentation will look at broad trends in family business, from the macro (e.g., strategic management) to the micro (e.g., organisational behavior, human resource management) perspectives, as well as a variety of research designs (e.g., qualitative, experimental, mixed-method, longitudinal). While considering the theoretical and methodological trends which are prevalent in family business research today, the presentation will also look towards future trends.

This event will include a presentation and interactive discussion targeted at family and non-family business scholars who are interested in conducting future research within the context of family business. Scholars from a non-family business background are also welcome.

A light lunch will be available on the day.
