The Jesuit Order
The educational principles of the Jesuits are in the tradition of a Christian humanism. The Jesuits are characterised by an appreciation of the human person and their ability to give content and meaning to one's own life. This is not an elitist concept of self-optimisation that optimally develops one's own resources for self-realisation and career. Rather, it is about the question of how people learn to use their talents for the good of society and for the preservation of the endangered planet.
In addition to the academic focus, the development of critical judgement and morally grounded character formation are part of the excellence of Jesuit personality development.
Finally, an important dimension is the discovery and perception of silence as a basis for engaging with oneself, fellow human beings and God (jesuiten.org).
The Lassalle-Institut can draw on a broad network of national and international experts, including various universities and faculties of business ethics of the Jesuit Order:
