Our Vision and Missions

Towards Knowledge Leadership in Family Business

The Center for Family Business (CFB) was established by The Asia-Pacific Institute of Business (APIB) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2012. Before the Center was found, the Center for Entrepreneurship and the Family Business Consortium under APIB had hosted most of the relevant activities focusing on family entrepreneurship and succession since 2006.  Our Business School recognizes the importance of this multi-disciplinary field in the Asian context, and is instrumental in offering a full-spectrum of support to this growing field. The Center shall serve as a major driver of the family business activities in Hong Kong and in the Asia-Pacific region.
