About the Cox Family Enterprise Center

At the Cox Family Enterprise Center, we value the Family Enterprise Community above all else. As the oldest family business center in the world, we have developed and explored a variety of strategies for enhancing the collective interests of families and businesses – in our region, and beyond.

We holistically support business families by creating comprehensive education tailored to their needs. For those working within family enterprises, we offer programs designed to foster greater strength and services intended to generate synergy in both family and business contexts. For those working as advisors to business families, we have designed education to deepen their perspectives and equip them with the necessary skills for working in the field.

Bookending these efforts, we engage in industry-shaping research and undergraduate and graduate education through the Coles College of Business. At the core of these efforts perpetually remains our commitment to education as a crucial tool for enhancing the wealth and success of the entire community.
