Building Livelihoods in the Most Vulnerable Communities

Business on the Frontlines examines the impact of business in societies affected by extreme poverty and conflict. As a course in the Notre Dame MBA program, BOTFL provides opportunities for students and alumni to engage and partner with non-profit organizations and multi-national companies to harness the dynamism of businesses to build these communities before they tip into conflict.
