We regularly host Ph.D. students to spend a visiting research period at JIBS in our rich research environment with the goal contributing to the development of family business and ownership research.


Update (February 2022): Sweden removed all COVID-19 restrictions. CeFEO is open

again for visits! Please contact us if you interested.

The visiting students are part of the academic life of the CeFEO. We currently accept visits for periods between 1 to 6 months.

Doctoral students actively participate to the research seminars and workshop organized by the centre and present their research project in a CeFEO Seminar organized during the visiting period. The visiting student have access to JU Library resources and receive an office space for the time of the visit.

CeFEO does not finance or provide any grant to the visiting student. The entire cost of the visit should be covered by the visiting student and their own university.

Faculty members are invited to consider the CeFEO Visiting Scholars program.

Interested candidates can submit the following information to CeFEO Director, Massimo Baù:

  • Motivation letter describing their interest on family business or ownership topics
  • Letter of endorsement from their supervisor
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Doctoral proposal (or an outline of the thesis)
  • Publications (if any)
  • Suggested period for a visit


Please notice, for organizational reasons, the request for a visiting period should be sent at least three months before the beginning of the suggested period for a visit.
