Imparting knowledge: Education and Teaching Goals

Knowledge is becoming the most important resource in post-industrial 21st-century society. The education sector is constantly developing and nations often compare themselves by the standard of their education system.

Nowadays, the term "knowledge" has new connotations. It is no longer associated with archives, school and the educated middle classes but is understood as a resource that lends an edge to a knowledge-based society, to give it a decisive competitive advantage and to promote innovation. The creation and imparting of knowledge has therefore become a core function of highly developed national economies. 

Life-long learning is becoming increasingly necessary and sought-after: the number of private universities, technical universities and corporate universities is increasing; as is the thirst for education. For 650 years now, the MedUni has been growing alongside this dynamic market for knowledge and education.
