MTS Diploma

Diploma in Management of Third Sector Organizations and Social Enterprises

This year in its XXII edition, it is aimed at those who intend to develop solid professional skills in the management of nonprofit organizations: people from the Third Sector world, graduates from every discipline. The formation program provides the basic elements and deeper insights into the various areas that the manager of a nonprofit organization has to deal with to effectively guide its institutional activities, in a context in which programming, structure management and networking must be treated with great care. Taking into account recent developments in the nonprofit sector both at the legislative level and in the economic context, particular attention is paid to the interrelations between communication and fundraising, in order to improve the organization’s economic efficiency and competitiveness in the realization of its social projects.

This new edition of the Course includes: 104 hours of frontal lessons and workshops, organized into 8 modules, which take place on Fridays and Saturdays (one each month) from 15:00 to 19:00 (Friday) and 9:00-13:00, 14:00-18:00 (Saturday); a round table of thematic deepening, with the participation of experts from the Third Sector; a written exam at the end of the course; optional 100 hours of internship at a Third Sector Organization.

Attendance and participation in the exams is obligatory. At the end of the course, a diploma will be issued. Auditing students may also participate: a certificate of attendance will be issued at the end of the course.

CSR Diploma

Diploma in CSR, Social Innovation and Sustainability

The course aims to train managers and experts who, within the public and private institutions of the country, are able to direct, guide and implement options and actions according to the principles of social innovation and sustainability, taking into account the social demands present in the territory and reference markets. To this end, it offers practical methodological and operational tools for the adoption and dissemination of sustainability practices throughout the entire life cycle of businesses and institutions.

This new edition of the program originates from the experience of the Master in Management and Corporate Social Responsibility, established at the Angelicum since 2003, which in twelve editions formed two-hundred students, workers and professionals. Two elements characterize it:

MULTIDISCIPLINARY: The complexity faced and the urgency to identify and pursue paths of sustainability (social, economic, environmental, institutional) require a multidisciplinary, integrated and flexible training that allows everyone to take advantage of their own formation, professionalism and experience to operate in an innovative and integrated manner with a view to the common good;

OPENNESS: a culture of sustainability requires the integration of different skills (the course is accessible to graduates of all backgrounds and those who already work –even non graduates– interested in deepening these topics); it must be widely disseminated and understood at all levels of institutional, professional and civic levels in the country, so that sustainable development objectives can be comprehended and pursued (the course is in the Italian language and it is open to dialogue with the areas and different circumstances of the various stakeholders involved in the processes); it must be economically viable (so as not to fall into the elite perspective of many management training offers).

The course is structured in 4-hour modules on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings, where university lecturers and industry professionals alternate frontal lessons with group work and simulations. The course takes place in collaboration with the Coordination Agenda 21 Italian businesses, Confcooperative, Ethics SGR, Next and under the patronage of the Dicastery for the Integral Human Development Service.

E-CST Diploma

Online Diploma in Christian Social Thought & Contemporary Society

Faithful to the Church’s guidelines and consistent with the permanent commitment of the Dominican Order to a faith that operates with justice, the Faculty of Social Sciences, in collaboration with the Dominican International University (Domuni), launched, since February 2016, a program in the Italian language for the scientific formation in the field of the Church’s social doctrine and Christian ethics, through the Moodle online platform.

  • General Ethics
  • Political Ethics
  • Economic Ethics
  • The Church’s Social Doctrine
  • History of Christian Social Thinking

E-SOC Diploma

Online Diploma in Social Ethics

In 2020 the Faculty of Social Sciences, in collaboration with the Dominican International University (Domuni), launched a new program in the Italian language, aimed to develop new insight to contemporary social ethics issues. The thread that binds the reflection of the teachers is the personalist ethics of virtues, re-proposed in the Christian tradition of the enhancement of the human person. It is only with this realism, in fact, that personal ethics becomes social, that is, projected towards the enhancement of community and of common good. Where the Common Good is not thought of as an abstract and a priori category, but as realized in the Common Goods: health, safety, mobility, human rights…

The program is organized into five modules:

  • Ethics of Artificial Intelligence
  • Human Rights
  • Ethics and Migration policy
  • Care Ethics (available from June 2020)
