Core Values

Five Core Values always at the heart of Institute of Management Science's mission, ground and enliven the institution's academic and co-curricular programs and its operating ethos. These values ground and enliven the Institute's identity, heritage and commitment to knowledge for both personal enhancement and social progress.

Our core values are:

Integrity

Integrity is an extension of honesty; it is doing the right thing even if no one is watching.

We are committed to ethical and responsible behavior in our own actions and to developing the same commitment in our students, thus fostering individuals who will have the skills, knowledge, and ability to engage positively with a diverse and changing world. Our commitment extends to all levels of our campus to foster a climate of ethical conduct, respect, responsibility, and trust.

Merit

An open and transparent academic environment based on unqualified merit for all policies and activities at IMS ensuring no compromise on the abilities, performance and development of the Faculty.

Professional Excellence

We believe in lifelong intellectual development of students, faculty, and staff. We are committed to the free pursuit of knowledge and continuous growth in learning and teaching.

Professional Ethics:

The Institute of Management Science values high professional standards and ethical conduct among its faculty and students. Students and faculty are expected to be honest, fair, and respectful of others. The cornerstone of the Institute of Management Science’s conceptual framework is the metaphor of the reflective practitioner. Reflective practice involves reflecting on and taking responsibility for one’s actions through the continuous planning and re-planning of professional practice. The philosophy we embed in this model advocates professional responsibility and individual awareness of one’s own belief systems and limitations, as well as those embodied in the diverse populations we encounter professionally. This involves adapting to the needs of different populations by analyzing and explaining problematic situations, testing hypotheses, and continually reformulating one’s understanding of practice through critical thinking, discussion, scholarship, and collaboration.

Humility

Humility is the ability to be humble, not to be big-headed or boastful, and to recognize that we all still have a lot to learn.

We understand each other’s perspectives and exhibit humility at all times, appreciating their experiences and ideas.
