Certificate Programs


Do you want to expand your knowledge of business but don’t have the time to earn another degree? Our graduate certificate programs might be for you. In these programs, you’ll learn advanced knowledge in your chosen area while also growing as a person through daily meditation practice and the support of our friendly community.

In our graduate certificate programs, you will

  • Study your field of choice in-depth with expect faculty in one full-time course per month
  • Practice the Transcendental MeditationⓇ technique daily to promote your personal growth, lower stress, and promote overall health
  • Live in a supportive community of fellow students, professors, and other individuals who are committed to making the world a better place

Study the knowledge in-depth

At MUM, we use a block system, which means that our students take only one full-time course per month. Without the pressure of multiple classes, exams, and homework assignments, you’ll have the chance to dive deeply into the course material without the stress typical of college.

Our small class sizes mean that you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions, work in groups, and spend one-on-one time with our expect faculty.

Daily meditation & a healthy lifestyle

All students and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique twice a day as part of their daily schedule. This scientifically-validated technique has been proven to lower stress, enhance creativity, and improve overall health.

In addition to meditating, you’ll enjoy other healthy lifestyle options as an on-campus student, including single rooms, organic vegetarian meals, and a low-stress daily routine.
