Grow Your Business, Help the World

Society is recognizing the importance of sustainability and new opportunities in the area abound. MUM’s MBA in Sustainable Business program will train you how to create a profitable business that offers life-sustaining products and services while helping you to grow into the best person you can be.

In our MBA in Sustainable Business program, you will:

  • Learn how a business can help the environment while still being profitable
  • Practice the Transcendental Meditation technique daily to reduce stress, enhance clear thinking, and support your personal growth
  • Enjoy the support of a community of fellow students, entrepreneurs, and businesspeople who share your vision of making the world a more sustainable place

“Green Both Ways”

MUM embraces the vision that business can be “green both ways,” meaning that a business can make money while also interacting in harmony with nature.

As a student, you’ll study real-world examples of green business and “natural capitalism” — often referred to as “the next industrial revolution.”

Joyful Learning

At MUM, classes follow a block system: meaning that our students take one full-time course a month instead of balancing multiple classes, homework assignments, and exams.

In this system, you’ll have the opportunity to dive deep into the knowledge without distraction and learn without the stress typical of an MBA program.

Study Sustainability

Elements of sustainability that you’ll study in our programs include:

  • Self sustainability: Developing your full mental potential, physical health, and leadership abilities
  • Sustainable entrepreneurship: Creating successful “green” businesses that produce real value for society
  • Sustainable business solutions: Learning techniques of continuous process improvement to sustain business success—serving the evolutionary needs of customers while eliminating waste for the business and the environment
  • Sustainable management: Practicing the interpersonal and organizational skills needed to successfully carry out transformational change

All of our students and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique daily. This technique has been scientifically proven to lower stress, enhance mental clarity, and support overall health.

In addition to meditating, you’ll be living a healthy, low-stress lifestyle: single rooms, organic vegetarian meals, and an ideal routine are standard for all of our on-campus students.

Supportive Community

At MUM, you’ll be surrounded by fellow entrepreneurs, thinkers, and influencers who share your vision of making the world a better place. MUM’s faculty and staff are also committed to supporting your success as a professional and as a person.

In addition, the town of Fairfield has been named the entrepreneurial capital of Iowa, with Fairfield businesses holding one-third of the state’s total venture capital. Fairfield’s supportive community is an ideal place to watch your own business grow with the help of other creative entrepreneurs.
