EMBA for Families
The FB EMBA (EMBA for Families in Business) course was created under the auspices of Kennesaw State University, USA
The main emphasis of this programme is the financial education of family business owners and the study of the peculiarities of financial management when preparing a business for transfer to subsequent generations. In addition, this programme provides deep knowledge of the nature of family conflicts and the influence of the family genogram on a family business.
Vladislav Burda took the FB EMBA course in 2009-2011.
A special characteristic of this course is a practical introduction to the companies of the business owners taking the course. Thus, the graduates of the FB EMBA-2011 course visited 12 family companies in six countries over 18 months. Acquaintance with various national and corporate cultures and with families and companies from the inside has laid the foundation for durable relationships between the instructors and all the business owners who participated in the programme.
Vadim Orlov, director of supply chain management at the RedHead Family Corporation, is a first European top manager, that has been accepted to FB EMBA program by the decision of Joseph Astrachan and will graduate in May 2013. RedHead has emphasized its uniqueness once again in the case of Vadim; before this, managers who were not members of an owner’s family could not receive this education.
The extensive successful experience of dozens of RedHead professionals is now becoming available to new employees.
The transfer of unique knowledge and involvement in the culture of RedHead Family Corporation are the main tasks of training.
The company has a wide range of training programs. Internal experts provide these training programs. Also, trainers from large consulting companies are often involved. The "Smart Head" information platform contributes to the constant experience exchange, supporting colleagues sharing useful knowledge with the colleagues.
The company is actively introducing online and offline modern methods and formats of education.
