The International Development academic area at the Busch School of Business and Economics has pioneered groundbreaking programs in Integral Economic Development, an approach that seeks to strengthen the civil and social institutions required for sustainable development and that takes an integrated view of the person's role in society.

It is an approach that development entities increasingly demand. Integral economic development, seen from the perspective of the whole human person, and the whole human community, is at the core of our programs and the mission of The Catholic University of America.
