Tomorrow is beautiful
The old truths suggest that to lead, leaders must have foresight, and they must lead by example; they must motivate and inspire on a moral basis, through aspiration as well as recognition and reward. It is precisely this calm, considered, and ethical leadership, required to lead and inspire large numbers of people that seems in short supply today…
Cognisant of the drivers of change and megatrends impacting on society, we are aware of the responsibility and trust that we as a business school of the next generation of leaders bear. Hence, ethical and sustainable business practices is at the heart of our teaching and research philosophy. To this end we have embraced the notion of “phronesis”, meaning practical wisdom, based on an intellectual virtue that implies ethics and involves deliberation based on values, concerned with practical judgement and informed by reflection. It is pragmatic, variable, context-dependent, and oriented toward action while driven by the pursuit of the #commongood. In demonstrably making MBS’s philosophy manifest, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will serve to inform the way we think, reason and act in relation to teaching, research, and engagement with industry.
As a business school, we, our students and alumni will endeavour to be generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable economy – for our country, our continent, and the world at large. Tomorrow is beautiful… MBS develops ethical leaders for the #commongood.
