    Integrity and Honesty

    Integrity is the "quality or state of being of sound moral principle; uprightness; honesty; and sincerity" (Webster's New World Dictionary). Similarly, honesty is thought of as the quality of being truthful and trustworthy. When combined, especially in an academic environment, this means we will not compromise the truth, being vigilant to ensure the truth of knowledge perseveres, and that decisions will be made on the basis of what is good for all constituencies.
  • student with cap

    Academic Excellence

    We will make decisions regarding program offerings, faculty selection, and reward systems on the basis of whether the outcome of the decision will ultimately enhance the quality of learning provided to the student. Emphasis will be on quality of content and quality of presentation.

    Diversity, Individual Dignity, and Mutual Respect

    The Andreas School of Business represents a rich tapestry of differences: nationality, gender, religion, age. This richness is experienced in the classroom as well as in the interaction of colleagues. The effect is a quality which impacts on all: student, faculty, staff, and all those with whom they come into contact. Differences generated from diversity require a respect for those differences; the uniqueness and preciousness of these qualities will be respected and protected. The respect of each other's dignity leads to a climate of mutual respect: we will respect and defend the right to have contrasting opinions.
  • Continuous Improvement

    Continuous Improvement

    We will strive to always place the target of quality in front of us rather than behind us. We will be sensitive to the needs of our constituencies and make those adjustments in our efforts so as to maintain integrity of quality while continuously striving for a better product.
