- Hit show Succession features family power struggle to take over a media empire
- Now a course at Cambridge University aims to help heirs of real-life tycoons
- The course, priced at £12K, aims to produce world leaders and chief executives
In the hit US TV series Succession, the fiercely ambitious children of multi-billionaire Logan Roy are constantly vying for control of their father’s vast media dynasty.
The power plays of his hapless offspring rarely go to plan – but for the heirs of real tycoons, the path to their inheritance could be smoothed by a new Cambridge course.
The university – which is ranked third highest globally – is offering the Multi-Generational Leadership Programme designed to ‘equip the world’s most influential families to shape the 21st Century’.
Working-class students need not apply for tuition in ‘multi-generational leadership’ for ‘highly influential families across the world’, which aims to produce world leaders and chief executives.
The prospectus warns that multi-generational wealth ‘can be destructive’ and ‘family continuity can be undermined without adequate preparation for succession’.
