mc 7.9.18 catholic leadership group no textHow to effectively manage a non-profit Catholic organization? What role should the mission of the organization play in its stable development? How to design the strategic plan? What are the key components of fundraising? How do we identify our strengths and weaknesses and, understanding them, work for common goal? Finding answers to these and many other questions related to the efficient functioning of Catholic non-profit organizations was the content of the 9th Annual Catholic Leadership Certificate Program.


Forty-six leaders from more than twenty countries in three continents (America, Africa, Europe) participated in the program which took place in the United States of America during the second week of July 2018 thanks to collaboration between Nonprofit Certificate Education in the Mendoza College of Business and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies in the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame. Top experts and Notre Dame faculty educated the fellows in a series of lectures and practical exercises. Slovakia was represented by Jela Kehoe, Radoslav Lojan, Martin Papčo and Eugen Zeleňák from the Catholic University in Ružomberok.


According to representatives of the University of Notre Dame, this program is part of the University of Notre Dame’s commitment to support the mission and work of Catholic institutions around the world. Each year fellowships are offered to professionals in Catholic organizations that cover 95% of the $5,000 registration fee.
