The Maharishi Institute is a non-profit organisation established in June 2007 that is changing the very concept of what higher education can achieve through providing students access to higher education via distance learning that is supported by services, including work experience, infrastructure access, bridging programmes, and self-development programmes.
A university can be a social entrepreneurship venture in itself -taking on unemployed, previously disadvantaged youth who cannot afford to pay the fees for tertiary education - and that same free access university can be self-funding and growing, without any support from government. The success of the MI solution is built upon:
• A holistic Consciousness-based Education approach, focused on re-igniting the innate genius of the individual;
• Demand-driven, relevant, future-focused training and skills development;
• The combination of education with extensive, relevant work experience with their internal companies and corporate partners
