Dear All,

Wishing you all a Wonderful Year ahead!

You will be delighted to know that our next major conference is round the corner. We will be organizing the Fourth Asian Invitational Conference on Family Business at the ISB during February 1 – 3, 2013 with “Built Forever – Outstanding Business Performance and Lasting Family Harmony” as the main theme. As always, we have the academic conference (exclusively for the academics presenting paper) on February 1 and Business Conference on February 2 & 3. Please visit our website for details and process of registration. I hope you will be able to make it to the conference.

We have chosen Philanthropy as the main theme for this issue of the Family Business News. We have included the snapshots of some articles and gist of press clippings. Hope you will find them interesting.

The ISB has recently launched its new Management Programme for Family Business (MFAB). This post graduate level programme is specially designed to groom the younger generation of family owned businesses for leadership. More details of the programme can be viewed at Please contact Ramanjaneyulu Vaidyula at, contact no 91 40 23187700 for further details.

As always, I encourage you to send your feedback and interesting articles which we can consider for inclusion in our forthcoming newsletters.
