Welcome to Renewing Mission and Identity in Catholic Business Education
June 18 - 20, 2012
Eighth Annual International Conference on Catholic Social Thought and Management Education
In the last 50 years, the role of business education in Catholic universities has become increasingly significant. World-wide there are over 1,800 Catholic universities with more than 200 in the United States. A growing number of these universities have business programs, some of which are the largest professional degree programs in their university.
As business education occupies an expanded role in Catholic colleges and universities, the future of Catholic higher education is inseparable from how its mission and identity is appropriated and explained within its business program. Reciprocally, how business programs and their stakeholder networks influence the Catholic mission and identity of the university itself is another closely related matter requiring careful reflection.
Please join us in an effort to examine creative venues to energize mission-driven business education in Catholic universities by exploring ways to deepen and revitalize culture and institutionalize mission and identity.
