A Summer School based on Moral Theology and Ethics, developed for Social Sciences students: this is the new initiative from the Markets, Culture and Ethics Research Center (MCE) in program for September 2015.
From Sept. 21st to Sept. 27th, students from around the world can attend an entire week of lessons at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, taking part in a life-changing experience.
The Schools of Economics, Law and Political Sciences are falling in the dangers of excessive specialization. They risk losing sight of the overall vision - being Social Sciences above all. As such, they are concerned with the knowledge and the study of the human person and its social and individual behaviors. The MCE Summer School has been created in order to provide a solid basis for Christian ethics and values to the men and women who work in the social, political or economic fields, either as scholars or professionals. This is a real opportunity where faith and reason can communicate and serve one another, in order to be truly effective in contemporary culture and society.
The MCE Summer School will be conducted in English. The speakers will be Prof. Robert Gahl, professor of Applied Ethics at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross and Prof. Martin Schlag, professor of Moral Theology and Academic Director of the MCE Research Center.
The MCE Summer School offers twenty hours of lessons in one week and a roman experience waiting to be lived. The students will have the opportunity to visit some of the most well-known Roman sights that are closely related to the study topics. There will be many pleasurable moments: film forums, snacks with prominent guests and trips to the most significant places in Rome.
The week will have an impact on the students: it will challenge their points of view and invite them to deeply question their professional actions.

Giovedì 12 marzo, il prof. Schlag ha tenuto una lezione in occasione dell' Executive Master in Business Administration (EMBA) organizzato dall' Università di Tor Vergata. Partendo da alcune considerazioni sulla crisi economico-finanziaria, cristallizzate da film come "Wall Street: il denaro non dorme mai" o "Margin Call", si è parlato della necessità di recuperare la componente etica anche nel mondo della finanza.
