A Double Challenge for Catholic Social Thought and Management Education


July 11-14, 2000
Universidad Iberoamericana
Puebla, Mexico



We cordially invite you to attend the Fourth International Symposium on Catholic Social Thought and Management Education. Presenters at the conference are scholars and practitioners from various fields of expertise and practice. Their presence provides the basis for a robust and fruitful interdisciplinary conversation. Concurrent papers of the conference will be sent out approximately one month before the conference to limit lengthy presentations and encourage sustained conversations. The plenary sessions will be simultaneously translated in Spanish and English. The conference is hosted by Universidad Iberoamericana Campus Golfo Centro located in the beautiful colonial city of Puebla, Mexico one and one half hours southeast of Mexico City airport (120 kilometers). As Mexico’s fourth largest city in population, Puebla lies between the two ranges of the Sierra Madre situated in a high fertile valley at 2,000 m. above sea level. If you have any questions concerning the conference, please do not hesitate to contact Michael Naughton:
