Several studies and reports have consistently identified CeFEO as one of the leading research environments in Europe and among the top three environments globally in the area of ownership and family business studies.

Relatedly, a large part of the research output that has placed JIBS high in multiple rankings stems from CeFEO [1].

This fact is supported by the recent ranking of entrepreneurship research published in Journal of Small Business Management. In this article, the authors particularly underline JIBS’s strength in family business research as a main reason for JIBS’s high ranking – 1st in Europe and 2nd worldwide (Xu, Chen, Fung and Chan, 2017).
