MISSION | VALUES | PRINCIPLES
of the Department of Business Administration & Marketing
We use Aristotle's concept of flourishing to inform our approach to the generation and dissemination of knowledge about the management of people and organizations, with the aim of benefitting society as a whole.
- Aristotle's view that epistemology is accessible and relevant to all
- A mindset of abundance rather than scarcity (wellbeing over competition)
- Organizations and societies are human cooperative efforts that require both strength and vulnerability in order to flourish
- Treating others and their ideas with fearless openness, respect and inquiry
- We assume people are inherently pro-social -- that we are "born to be good," in a pro-social sense
- Any view of power (e.g., as depicted in Machiavelli's The Prince, and which endures today) that equates it with coercion, might and dominance will foster deeply corrosive social structures that damage our individual and collective capacity for flourishing
- Over the long run, flourishing requires symbiotic balance; within people, between people and between people and the environment.
- Our research shares a common emphasis on generating new knowledge that serves to benefit society as a whole, beyond traditional views of organizational impact
- Our success is measured by a Balanced Scorecard that is in alignment with key institutional themes - access, inclusiveness and excellence - in teaching, research and service
- Recognition that organizations and the people in those organizations are inextricably embedded in society at large
- Organizations and their management have a social responsibility to their employees
