Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) Program

Comprehensive curriculum designed specifically for professional advisors to business families.

UBC’s Sauder School of Business proudly offers the Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) Program in partnership with the Family Enterprise Xchange (FEX), founded by the Business Families Centre in 2009.

Suited for all professionals working with family business clients, including accountants, lawyers, financial advisors, board members, and consultants, the FEA Program prepares participants to understand the unique challenges of family enterprises and how to better support them.  Comprised of seven, two-day modules, the FEA Program delivers proven tools and strategies for incorporating social and human considerations into a technical practice, giving advisors the full skill set needed to successfully work with business families. 

The FEA Program is also the first step to becoming a certified Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA), the first and only family enterprise advisor designation in the world.
