The Tuchman Way
Our mission and vision is driven by the foundational values of the school: Engagement, Innovation, and Impact.
Martin Tuchman School of Management creates value by integrating business and technical knowledge to prepare our graduates for career success through their ability to meet the challenges of the data driven, digital economy. The school delivers high quality academic programs, produces basic and applied research consistent with a research-intensive university, and fosters economic development through outreach programs focused on new venture formation, innovation, and workforce development.
The Tuchman Way: To apply the disruptive thinking, innovation and collaborative energy of a start-up to business education and research to enrich lives.
MTSM, through its research and scholarship, and its curricula and educational programs, impacts society in domain areas consistent with United Nations' sustainable development goals associated with industry, innovation, and infrastructure. Our focus is on leveraging our intellectual capital in the areas of innovation management, technological entrepreneurship, and advanced analytical methods to identify and evaluate the commercial and social implications of new and emerging technologies, to foster the development of new technologies that benefit society, and to leverage the entrepreneurial mindset to mitigate economic and social inequality.
We maintain a stimulating environment in which to work, learn and excel professionally — a place that is collegial and supportive, embracing the diversity of our colleagues and valuing everyone’s contributions to the school and our programs.
It is important for ideas and opinions to be expressed freely. We realize that passionate people engage in heated debates but that discussions are always collegial and professionally respectful, as constructive discussion is healthy and valued.
We strive for excellence with the understanding that it will not always be achieved. We know that excellence comes primarily from sustained collaboration and cooperation and not from the efforts of any one person. Our successes are collective and together we will be accountable to our students and the entire university community to help MTSM realize its full potential.
Educators and researchers have a responsibility to understand and embrace professional and ethical standards and to meet them at all times. We realize that integrity comes into play when doing the right thing is neither expedient nor easy, and we are committed to acting ethically at all times. Further, we believe that fairness lies at the heart of integrity, and we apply standards uniformly to our students and our colleagues.
We do new and interesting things in new and interesting ways whenever we can. We also help others to do so. While we find new ways to teach, to learn and to discover new knowledge, we are aware that innovations often fail. We celebrate the process of discovery and must critically evaluate our efforts to make sure they can withstand the scrutiny that distinguishes valuable innovation from fads, superficial thinking and hyperbole.
We are extremely proud of the rich diversity of our faculty, staff and students and committed to the principle of inclusive excellence where strength comes from synergy and value is created from the diversity of our colleagues and students.
