Our Founding Values

Diversity as a source of learning and enrichment

We are free from any dominant culture or prevalent dogma; we are open to, and respectful of, other views; we learn through the exchange of ideas and experiences.

Independence as a governance principle

We believe in intellectual freedom and are autonomous in our financial, institutional, and academic planning and decision-making process.

Rigour and relevance in teaching and research

We encourage diversity in research and teaching methods with no single school of thought or methodology predominating; what matters is rigor and impact on management as an academic discipline, on business practice, and in the classroom.

Closeness to the international business community

We partner with the international business community to explore and disseminate management knowledge; we believe in the role of business as a force for improving people's lives.

Entrepreneurial spirit

We are willing to experiment and innovate; we are ready to take risks and manage the results of our actions.
