Preparation for life
Ideally, a college education should prepare a student not just for a career but for life. Since the time of Plato's Academy, self-knowledge, or development of one's full inner potential, has been considered the highest ideal in education. Unfortunately, far too few universities today offer students the type of self-knowledge that develops their human potential—the source of success—no matter what career they end up choosing.
Growth from inside out
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Maharishi University of Management, created a university based on the motto, ''Knowledge is structured in consciousness.'' This means that what is most important in education is developing the knower, and that educational programs that develop students' consciousness are the foundation of academic study, not an elective or afterthought.
This has been the legacy of Maharishi University of Management, now celebrating its 40th year. Here students can choose from a range of disciplines—traditional fields like business and mathematics and exciting new ones like Sustainable Living and Media and Communications—gaining the latest knowledge in an environment of active learning and critical thinking. But along with that, and most importantly, students acquire real self-knowledge, developing themselves from inside out. This is what we call Consciousness-BasedSM education.
