Bio

Fabian Bernhard, Ph.D, is Associate Professor of Management and a member of the EDHEC Family Business Center. He studied business administration at the University of Mannheim in Germany. A subsequent scholarship led him to the University of Oregon from where he graduated with an MBA. After working several years at a large, international consulting company in New York, he returned to academia in 2007. During the following years as a PhD student at the European Business School (EBS) and the WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management in Germany, he developed the ideas of his book on “Psychological Ownership in Family Businesses”. After having completed his doctoral degree in 2011, he was a research Professor at INSEEC Business School in Paris and an adjunct Professor at the Family Enterprise Center (FEC) at Stetson University of Florida in the US. Fabian Bernhard’s current topics of interest revolve around the intersection of organizational behavior, organizational psychology, and family business research. In particular, Fabian is interested in the emotional dynamics in family businesses, moral emotions (such as shame and guilt), the education and preparation of next generational family business leaders, as well as all kinds of attachment to the family business, such as psychological ownership, commitment, social identity, and their influence on the decision-making process in family businesses.
