January 11 - 14, 2023 - UVM Grossman School of Business | Burlington, Vermont, USA

The Grossman School of Business's annual Schlesinger Global Family Enterprise Case Competition (SG-FECC) prepares participants to understand the critical issues that are unique to family enterprise by applying the knowledge and expertise they have developed in the classroom towards solving complex family business cases.
