Business on the Front Lines (BOTFL) has provided students in the Mendoza College of BusinessThe Note Dame Law School, and The Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies  with the opportunity to learn and serve in post-conflict societies. The course is composed of a carefully developed curriculum and a project around a problem with NGO and business partners. In past years the teams have visited Rwanda, the Philippines, Egypt, Guatemala, Bosnia, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Kenya to work on problems ranging from agriculture to micro-finance. The goals are twofold: provide the students of the class with the opportunity to learn about business in a post-conflict country, and provide our partners with research and recommendations for the problem at hand.
