Viva Bartkus

Associate Professor, Management & Organization

Fellow, Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace

Professor Bartkus graduated summa cum laude from Yale University with masters and bachelors degrees in economics, and then completed her doctorate and masters in International Relations at Magdalen College, University of Oxford while on a Rhodes Scholarship. Her research and teaching interests concentrate on two distinct areas: the leadership approaches most effective in solving complex business problems and the social capital of communities that enables collaboration. She co-led a major research initiative, “The Buck Stops Here,” examining how CEOs make complex decisions. Her most recent research and teaching initiative, Business on the Frontlines, examines the impact of business in rebuilding war-torn societies and was chosen by Forbes as one of the top 10 most innovative MBA courses in the country. Since 2008, her Business on the Frontlines teams have collaborated on nearly 50 business- and peace-related projects in over twenty countries with humanitarian agencies and multi-national corporations. Dr. Bartkus has also served on the Board of Directors of Catholic Relief Services, one of the largest humanitarian organizations in the world. Prior to joining the faculty at Notre Dame, she spent ten years at McKinsey & Company.
