Sense of Commitment

We always stand by our promises to all our stakeholders (Faculty, Participants, Academic Partners, Corporate Community, etc…);
In all we do, we always abide by the principles of equity and show respect for equal opportunity and diversity.
Since its establishment, ESCA Ecole de Management has always been positioned as a pioneer institution and a reference in management education, research and vocational training.
We are proud to contribute to the development of our country and prepare leaders carrying values for the modernization of society.
At ESCA Ecole de Management, we have strong convictions that business schools have a responsibility and a role to play in the training of managers and future leaders, carrying ethical values, transparency and civic responsibility role.
Furthermore, we firmly believe that business schools should lead by example by setting up their own system of values that would be applied in their own academic community, but that could also find an extension in society in general. In this context, we designed together with our stakeholders a Code of Ethics which consists of a Charter of Ethics and a Code of Conduct. These transparent accountable code allows us to have clear positions on a range of ethical issues and situations that we face in our daily mission. The Code of Ethics is based on five ethical founders that we share at ESCA Ecole de Management: respect, fairness, responsibility, integrity and sharing.
We consider that « Respect » is an essential value that is required in the development of sustainable relations within a given environment. It is at the root of the « art of living together »and the guarantee of positive interactions between the stakeholders and their natural and social milieu. Respect can take different forms depending on the element to be respected: respect of others, respect of difference, respect of ideas, and respect of environment.
In order to maintain an atmosphere that is motivating and enhancive for all stakeholders, it is important to enforce a team culture in which all parties are fairly and objectively treated. All stakeholders will thus be given the same opportunities. Equity also means acknowledging merit and avoiding subjective and biased judgments. It calls for realism and to the courage of facing critical cases and situations and finding adequate solutions to them without any discrimination.
The fact of asserting one’s rights and assuming one’s responsibilities is an attitude that should be promoted in
all and any circumstances. Through responsibility, we also expect individual to be accountable for their
acts within the framework of a mutual pedagogical and administrative moral agreement. This reminds of the necessity
for everyone to respect their commitments vis-à-vis the school, its mission, values and strategic objectives and
to effectively contribute to their achievement. It, however,
depends on the need to mark out everyone’s area of action as well as their decision-making power.
In order to consolidate and strengthen confidence and trust within the school, it is important to show honesty and integrity. This implies the adoption of various forms of behavior, namely the protection of intellectual property, respect of information confidentiality and avoiding conflict of interest.
In order to build an effective atmosphere of collaboration within the school, we are supposed to show sharing. By sharing, we refer to the sharing of expertise, the sense of belonging in a participative process.
