The Best Doctoral Dissertation Award is given to encourage and recognize outstanding academic achievement in the field of family business study. The Best Dissertation Award is awarded annually after a blind, peer review of all submissions.
Dissertations, including multi-article dissertations, may be on any topic of relevance to the understanding and appreciation of family firms and/or family firm advisors. Dissertations must have been written in English as part of a doctoral course of study at an accredited academic institution and must have been defended in the last 18 months.
The 2023 Best Doctoral Dissertation Award is generously sponsored by the Grossman School of Business at the University of Vermont.
