Peter Jaskiewicz conducts quantitative and qualitative research on entrepreneurship and family business. His current research focuses on antecedents of transgenerational entrepreneurship and corporate reputation in family and founder firms. Moreover, Peter researches organizational outcomes of entrepreneurial legacies, managerial pay dispersion, and family dynamics in these firms.

Peter's research has been published in journals such as Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Management, Journal of Business Venturing, Academy of Management Learning & Education, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Family Business Review, Journal of Small Business Management, and Journal of Business Research.

In his teaching, Peter shares up-to-date knowledge on entrepreneurship, family business and corporate governance with Bachelor, Master, and PhD students. Peter also organized an annual MBA Summer School on "Leadership in Europe" (2006-2008) and led an annual Study Tour on "Governance, Entrepreneurship and Family Business" (2009-2013) in Europe.

Beyond research and teaching, Peter has successfully helped to fundraise more than $950,000 as the principal investigator or as a co-investigator of research proposals and grants.

He is currently a review board member at Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Corporate Governance: An International Review, and Family Business Review. In addition to these academic positions, Peter is an Advisory Board member at Venture for Canada.
