Our Values

Our six values support our three cornerstones and allow us to measure our intentions, behavior and actions. These commonly developed values have been guiding the collaboration among all our stakeholders – from students to professors and administrative staff, as well as our business partners, parents and friends of our students, our suppliers and partners in society.

Professional engagement

We are prepared and on time. We honor our agreements. We deliver high quality work. We pursue highest ethical standards in everything we do. We inspire others to do the same.

A force for good

We care for the world we live in. We are free-thinking and authentic. We recognize business as force for a sustainable and socially just world. We seek to balance economic, societal and environmental concerns.

Collaborative innovation

We collaborate to make new things happen. We build on diversity of thought, culture and approach. We shape the future by asking why, what for and why not. We overcome difficulties and challenges.

Solution-oriented partnership

We create an environment of trust and respect. We are flexible. We listen and respond with solution-oriented ideas and actions. No matter what happens, we ask: what is my role in this and what can I do now?

Lifelong learning

We welcome discovery and change. We help each other grow. We are willing to change our thinking and behavior. We transform differences of opinion into a source for growth.

Courageous leadership

We dare to do what we believe is right. Together, we work towards common goals. We highlight the contribution of others. We encourage each other to think differently and take the risk of making mistakes.
