Vision, Mission, Values

A PIONEERING VISION

ESDES is a school which promotes a pioneering vision of managing modern companies. In fact, sustainable business development is only possible in certain conditions. Contrary to the mainstream (that dominant thought which reduced companies to simple financial vehicles), the school defends the total performance principle®, a three-dimensional combination (economical, social and environmental). In fact, only this combined performance will allow the company to better fit into its ecosystem and consequently develop more sustainably.

A MISSION DEVELOPING WITH SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CHANGE

ESDES is the first school that offers an innovative definition of the purpose of the company based on the total performance principle® and sustainable governance®. Thus, in response to society's expectations and new economic challenges, ESDES has decided to train through education and research in order to innovate and undertake in favor of the emergence of a responsible economy in a globalized and digital world.

3 FUNDAMENTAL VALUES

ESDES developed on the basis of humanistic values it shares with UCLy. It translated these values in its area of management teaching activity and adjusted them to be in line with its mission and convictions:
  • Collective performance: the success of a project or achieving a goal can only be achieved collectively, collective performance therefore implies adherence, sharing, listening, and respect for others.
  • The exemplary: applied to the exercise of its mission, assumes the exemplary fidelity to its commitments requirement in achieving their work and intellectual honesty.
  • Citizenship: the citizenship dimension is intrinsic to the emergence of a responsible economy, it implies the awareness and consideration of the repercussions of our actions on society.
