Let’s talk

We’d like to talk a bit about the professionally significant tools you get at Maharishi University of Management that you don’t tend to or simply can’t get at other schools.

We love higher education, and other schools (they have football teams!), but there are simply some things that you can easily gain at MUM that either don’t happen or are harder to come by elsewhere.

See MUM Alumni Profiles here

About the Benefits

First of all, there is the baseline array of benefits of the Transcendental Meditation® program (“TM”), which all MUM students, faculty and staff practice. Many of these benefits will stay with you long after you graduate, but the research-documented points of greatest interest to students are:

  • Increased creativity
  • Increased efficiency of perception and memory
  • Increased intelligence in secondary and college students
  • Improved memory
  • Increased resistance to distraction
  • Greater intellectual and scientific orientation
  • Increased self-confidence

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that all that is good for a student. And if you would like to be a rocket scientist, it’s even better.

There are also non-intellectual benefits of the TM program that translate directly to career success, such as stress management, increased energy, increased tolerance, and increased sociability, and one that is essential: improved relations with co-workers and supervisors.

In addition, there are other factors of the learning environment at MUM that give you an edge in the world of work, such as an intellectual habit of looking for deeper forces at work, and a sense of the deep unity of all fields of study.

This is due to three aspects of MUM’s Consciousness-Based Education method (CBE):

  • Direct development of consciousness
  • A unifying framework for all knowledge
  • Special teaching and learning techniques that develop holistic awareness

Did we mention how nice everyone is?

At MUM you will make amazing friends from all over the world who are also growing in all the ways mentioned above, giving you a learning experience that is unique, but more importantly, fulfilling.

If you would like to learn more about how you can get more tools to become personally fulfilled and professionally successful, let’s talk (you can contact us using the blue form at the bottom of the page).

More Significant Tools for Success

Developing the total brain

The Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique provides the experience of “restful alertness,” which reduces stress, strengthens communication between the brain’s prefrontal cortex and different areas of the brain, and develops total brain functioning. (More about developing the total brain)

One course per month

MUM uses the Block System — our students are fully immersed in one course per month, and then move on to the next course. The Block System is immensely popular with students here because they learn more and integrate knowledge more effectively, and it eliminates the stress of taking four or five subjects at once.

Translation: no finals week.

Critical and Creative Seminars

If thinking is the basis of action, clearer thinking leads to better actions — actions more likely to fulfill our desires. Since we all have desires we would like to fulfill, we ought to be interested in how to put the clearest thinking behind them.

That’s why we have Critical and Creative Seminars

Organic Vegetarian Meals

We’re the first U.S. college to offer an organic, vegetarian, freshly prepared menu — it’s one reason why our students are often healthier when they graduate than when they enroll.

The Inside-Out Approach to Career Planning

When guiding students on career and life planning Steve Langerud, MUM’s career counselor, favors an “inside-out” approach.

"I was struck by the happiness of students and the loving, open atmosphere. People laugh here. People hug here. The professors are open and welcoming when approached."
