Center for Church Management and Business Ethics

Villanova’s Center for Church Management and Business Ethics performs research, conducts both for-credit and non-credit programs in Church management, and coordinates all business ethics activities within the Villanova School of Business.

The center offers a Master’s of Science in Church Management, as well several non-credit programs in Church management throughout the year. Through collaboration with Our Sunday Visitor as well as seminaries and dioceses throughout the country, the center works to help Church leadership be good stewards of their resources, use their facilities effectively, and build a stronger Church.

The center also works with VSB faculty and students to ensure that business ethics are at the core of what we do. The CCMBE coordinates opportunities for students to practice ethical business relationships in the light of our Catholic Augustinian tradition. Through ethics case competitions, offering consultation services to local non-profits, helping educate people in prison, and inspiring entrepreneurship within the inner city, the center looks to teach our future business leaders about social responsibility and give them a set of tools by which to practice it.
