The MUM Board of Trustees is adding young leaders to its ranks: Ram Shrivastava, 29, from India and Martin Davy, 36, from New Zealand.
Ram received his undergraduate degree in business administration in 2006 from Apeejay School of Marketing in New Delhi and graduated from MUM in 2011 with an MBA in sustainable business.
“I wanted to have my MBA degree from a business school that offered holistic development and not just trained me to get a job,” said Ram. “The MBA in sustainable business program at MUM felt like it was custom made for me.”
Ram is currently director of Maharishi Ayurveda Products India and heads the marketing and sales operations. He is also a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation® technique and is involved in teaching the TM® technique in Maharishi AyurVeda® hospitals and health centers in India.
“As a trustee of MUM, I wish every student to have the experience of fullness in education that I got at MUM going through my MBA,” said Ram. “I would particularly like to focus on working towards getting more Indian students to MUM, but what would really bring me satisfaction is establishing an MUM in India.”
Martin graduated from MUM in 2003 with a BA in Maharishi Vedic Science. He is also a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation technique. In 2009, he became director of Stress Free Schools New Zealand and was responsible for first introducing Consciousness-BasedSM education to a New Zealand school and raising NZ$100,000 to fund the program. Since 2012, he has served as national director of Maharishi Foundation Inc. New Zealand.
“I would like to help tell the world the incredible story of Maharishi University of Management,” said Martin. “How the graduates of MUM for decades have been changing the world in a way that no other university graduates are educated to do — and that if you want to create a better world, a peaceful world, a more enlightened world, MUM is the place to come.”
