Practice Transcendental Meditation

Academia doesn’t have to be stressful— that’s why all MUM students, staff, and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique twice a day.

This scientifically-validated technique has been shown to lower stress, enhance brain functioning, and support overall health. After regular meditation practice, our students often report feeling less stressed and more creative than ever.

Become a leader

A major emphasis of our PhD program is preparing graduate students to become teachers and leaders in business, academics, and beyond.
You’ll be trained in principles and practices for successful writing and teaching, which can be applied in a variety of leadership, consulting and academic situations.
