From 3 October 2022 to 7 July 2023
The diploma program is especially aimed at all those interested in leadership understood as service for the good of society.
In the context of a globalized and multicultural world, which increasingly requires more visibility and exemplary behavior, it is essential for any leader to have a solid formation and a life rooted in the daily exercise of character virtues.
The good in a leader is by nature expansive and inherently communicative, so a good life rightly ordered becomes a type of beacon that guides and encourages others, by word and example, towards a virtuous life. If the virtuous life of a leader is also accompanied by a deep spiritual and human formation, the ability to serve the community and become a point of reference for others will be even greater.
In addition to the goal of cultivating Virtuous Leadership, the program would also incorporate the development of soft skills, necessary for every good leader, such as the ability to effectively manage teams, resolve conflicts and manage crises, the ability to empathize, to actively listen, the ability to speak in public and persuade with the truth, etc.
It is an initiative created in order to develop a leadership program for students of Roman Universities (and beyond) based on virtues and oriented towards service.
The proposed Diploma Program will rest on three main pillars:
The Diploma Program, of 14 ECTS, will be taught online and will be compatible with other studies at the participating institutions. As such, it is a part-time program. It is planned to last one academic year. The recipients of this diploma will be people who occupy or will occupy positions of responsibility and who wish to learn leadership from the perspective of character virtues with an orientation to service.
Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, wish to offer a rigorous university-level Diploma Program called Leadership: Service through Virtues (LSTV) based on a virtuous leadership curriculum for, primarily but not exclusively, future leaders within the Roman Catholic Church worldwide.
With the encouragement of the Congregation for Catholic Education, LSTV will be offered in partnership with the Conference of Rectors of Roman Pontifical Universities and Institutions:
Pontifical Lateran University,
Pontifical University Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum),
Salesian Pontifical University,
Pontifical University of San Anselmo
Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum
Universidad Francisco de Vitoria.
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, or ECTS, is a standard means for comparing academic credits for higher education across the European Union and other collaborating European countries. One academic year corresponds to 60 ECTS credits that are normally equivalent to 1500-1800 hours of total workload. ECTS credits are used to facilitate transfer and progression throughout the European Union.
