“ALTIS is a breeding ground for minds and innovative ideas, where academics, professionals, entrepreneurs and managers, as well as talented youths, meet and debate turning managerial culture for sustainable development and impact entrepreneurship into reality.”
Vito Moramarco, ALTIS Director
ALTIS, Graduate School of Business and Society, was conceived in 2002 within the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore based on an idea of Professor Mario Molteni and of the then Rector, Professor Lorenzo Ornaghi, at a time when the discussion about corporate social responsibility, in the wake of the international debate, in Italy was in its early stages.
At the beginning of 2005 the School was established and started its activity. In the words of ALTIS first Director:
“At a time when many stated that Corporate Social Responsibility was a phenomenon destined to fade away in short time, with ALTIS we made a bet on the fact that it represented, instead, a key challenge to foster the development of a more aware and sustainable society. Today, the growing attention and the economic and political actions towards sustainability prove that we had a good intuition.”
