Business Education

In each of the expandable sections and categories below are background papers, syllabi and teaching notes related to the respective topic.  We encourage colleagues to download and share these resources as needed, crediting the authors as applicable.

In addition to these resources, it is with great excitement that we announce the newly created Business and Catholic Social Thought: A Primer seminar to be held at the Mendoza School of Business at the University of Notre Dame, June 2-5, 2019. 

During the two- and half-day seminar, participants will cover foundational principles in Catholic social thought and apply them to their own field of research and teaching. This seminar aims at widening epistemological preconceptions and showing practical implications of Catholic social thought for business in a way that affirms the goodness of business directed toward the common good. Participants will delve into social encyclicals, secondary sources, and relevant business texts that show the path for principled entrepreneurship.  For more information, please visit the seminar website.

It is our most sincere hope that you will consider applying or encourage your colleagues to apply to the Business and Catholic Social Thought: A Primer seminar where participants will gain knowledge, exchange experiences, receive help with their syllabi and orientation how best to integrate Catholic social thought into business education.
