Allied to the change of each organization is the diversity of its human capital, the need to continuously adapt to the different changes in the work environment itself, resulting from the resistance to prioritizing the changes ensuing from the business activity. In order to understand how culture can affect an institution, especially in the private sector, there is a need to understand how it manages its human resources in order to achieve its goals in a more efficient and effective manner. Using a qualitative approach, the study sought to understand the organizational strategies used at the Headquarters of the Catholic University of Mozambique, to achieve its objectives in terms of understanding and aggregation in its organizational culture. The participants in this research were employees with more than five years employment at the institution. The results obtained showed that at the Catholic University of Mozambique, there is an organizational culture that tends to play a crucial role in the institution, as the organization currently tends to be dynamic both in its creation of value, as well as in its composition and organizational and environmental structure. More precisely, this dynamism is evidenced in the equipping of its facilities, using information and communication technologies, training staff, as well as its internal and external working relationships.
