Our Mission and Values
As an educational institution, our mission is to promote a non-dogmatic learning environment that brings together people, cultures and ideas from around the world, changing lives, and helping transform organisations through management education.
Through teaching, we develop responsible, thoughtful leaders and entrepreneurs who create value for their organisations and their communities.
Through research, we expand the frontiers of academic thought and influence business practice.
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 rigour 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.
We are willing to experiment and innovate; we are ready to take risks and manage the results of our actions.
