A Georgetown University program designed to address the needs of leaders of global family-owned businesses will work in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar.

Salzburg Global is collaborating with Georgetown's McDonough School of Business to co-host the Leading Global Family Business program later this year.

This premier two-module program begins at Schloss Leopoldskron, Salzburg, from September 14 to 16, and culminates at Georgetown from November 9 and 11. 

Using a variety of learning approaches, participants will explore global leadership strategies, the intersection of policy and family business, family governance, corporate governance, and board leadership.

During each three-day module, there will also be time for networking and peer-to-peer coaching opportunities.

Other program elements will enhance and extend the classroom discussions and will provide participants a rich cultural experience in both Salzburg and Washington, D.C.

Salzburg Global Vice President and Chief Finance Officer Pia Valdivia received an Executive Master's in Leadership at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business in 2007. Earlier this year, she took part in a Q&A to discuss Salzburg, her Georgetown experience, and the Leading Global Family Business program.

Discussing the program in this interview, Valdivia said, "The program focuses on issues that emerge as family-owned companies develop and grow, which critically impacts their sustainability. The need is to develop global leaders for the future of the enterprise and to sustain wealth into the next generation and beyond.

"Georgetown McDonough and Salzburg Global Seminar have crafted a program that discusses the specific challenges family businesses face managing globally. The goal is to foster high-level discussions and networking with executives from diverse industries and geographies and to provide insights that attendees can apply at their businesses."
