Abstract/Summary

Today’s business environment is plagued by unethical behavior, largely due to the pursuit of profit. This has contributed to man having a divided life and unmindful of his moral responsibilities. This paper is on integrating Catholic Social Teachings (CST) in business to help close the gap between work and faith. A survey conducted among incoming MBA freshmen reveals a low level of CST awareness, which poses a challenge to integration. Operationalizing Alford and Naughton’s (2001) model of explict engagement using case study research, with two entrepreneurs and their companies as subjects, this paper will provide managers and entrepreneurs with an understanding of how CST can be integrated in business, including the factors that support or hinder such integration.
