About Flame University

 

FLAME’s educational philosophy is rooted in the concept of liberal education, a system of instruction that transcends the artificial divisions that exist between disciplines and unmasks the underlying unity of all knowledge. It urges the student to engage with multiple disciplines in order to view issues from different perspectives leading to deeper understanding and better solution of problems. At the core of its educational experience is its resolute emphasis on lifelong learning, critical thinking, tolerance, and good citizenship.

 

The University prepares students for leading purposeful lives rather than specific and narrow professions. It does this in a participatory, personalized environment which provides a transformational experience for the students with the motivation and skills to change the world for the better. While empowering the student to be a global citizen, education at FLAME is firmly anchored in the Indian context that is sensitive and responsive to the needs of the country through its focus on research and innovation for creating maximum social impact.
