VU's slogan "Enhancing Strategic Alliances" encapsulates the school's guiding philosophy. VU wants to create knowledge, influence management practices and integrate globally. The school's way of teaching highlights human values and professional ethics. This will help business leaders make decisions that are not only good for them, but also for society and the world as a whole. VU is closely cooperating with recognized academic institutions of higher learning. Through these alliances, VU can offer its participants greater exposure and a unique way into the international world of business. The school believes that the alignment between economies of growth and economies of high development is a robust premise for future success.
VU is deeply concerned with managerial decision-making. From a market efficiency point of view, there are numerous arguments that favor globalization, turning our planet into a global village. Nevertheless, VU acknowledges there are equally compelling arguments to cherish natural, socio-economic and cultural diversity. While economic growth is a powerful engine, tomorrow's business leaders should never forget their responsibilities for environmental sustainability and future generations. Worldwide integration leads to scale economies and an abundance of opportunities. Yet ignorance of local customs and concerns causes local criticism and even failure.
At VU, the participant learns to resolve problems by studying its past and present development and its application in diverse situations. Participants will be taught how to consider the positive and negative features of each alternative and to reflect and discriminate the possible outcomes and their ethical aspects.
