Personal and organizational values can create the difference between an organization excellence and one in which disorganization dominates. The current research topic is in the direction of studying the way in which organizations survive in an unfavourable context through the personal and organizational values they adopt. In a synthetic expression, the organizational culture is reduced to the adopted values, ways of doing things and the atmosphere promoted among the people within the organization. But often organizational values are made up of the sum of individual values. The organization chosen as a case study is a private university type. For this study, a personal values questionnaire was applied to 30 persons most representative for organizational management. The following values were questioned: order, learning, power, people, network, safety, personal, success and survival.
