The overarching principle:
The Concordia MBA program is a community committed to transforming the world while we transform ourselves. This is not "A then B" but rather an on-going interplay between self transformation and changing the world.
These values provide guidance for how we live out that commitment.
As a community we are:
We bring a sense of hope to our work, balancing support and a belief in possibilities with rigor and commitment.
On a journey of learning together
Our community and classrooms are safe spaces to take risks and learn for both faculty and students. Transparency as well as intellectual and emotional honesty combine with caring and compassion to create this safe space. We preserve the integrity of our community by living what we teach.
Dedicated to making the world a better place
With each interaction, we aim to leave things better than we found them. We consciously work to improve ourselves, our organizations, and our communities. Toward that end, we use assessment and evaluation processes and tools that reflect our values and enable continuous improvement.
Willing to step into the mess
Life is messy. We are willing to deal with ourselves and our world as complicated and messy puzzles, wholes that are richer than the sum of their parts. By embracing paradox and creating a dialogue that honors all perspectives, we open a space for understanding the messiness and choosing a path.
All in this together
We have a shared accountability for the success of each other and the community. As co-learners in this adventure, we are willing to allow our dialogue to transform us individually and collectively. We support the growth and integrity of the whole as well as our individual growth and integrity.
