Church Management education in the heart of Rome

The Program of Church Management (PCM) is the flagship Church Management curriculum of the Global Institute of Church Management. Developed by the Markets, Culture, and Ethics Research Centre of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, PCM offers a certificate course of study and executive sessions to create a culture of Gospel-centered stewardship among current and future Church leaders.

How the program works

Students take part in a rigorous course of lectures, labs, and case studies centered on learning best managerial practices within the context of Catholic social teaching and canon law. The program culminates with a capstone project, approved by the student’s bishop, ordinary, or manager, where students demonstrate mastery of these principles by developing a solution to an identified need in their diocese. 

Throughout the program, students learn to engage with the pastoral use of material goods as a formative element of the Church and as an important part of their own spirituality as a person entrusted with a leadership role.

Business skills for the economy of salvation

Unlike other business schools where students learn to create wealth and build businesses, the Program of Church Management equips students to serve the poor effectively and use the material assets of the Church responsibly.
