Leave a comment

 “Here, learning is easy and effortless, so you feel good, you feel happy — you feel fulfilled, alive.”

International students explain (in their native languages) MUM’s unique approach to higher education, Consciousness-Based education.

English subtitles.

At MUM, Consciousness-Based education connects everything you learn to the underlying wholeness of life. So each class becomes relevant, because the knowledge of that subject is connected with your own inner intelligence. You study traditional subjects, but you also systematically cultivate your inner potential developing your creativity and learning ability. Your awareness expands, improving your ability to see the big picture, and to relate to others.

Maharishi University of Management (MUM) offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the arts, sciences, business, and humanities. The University is accredited through the doctoral level by the Higher Learning Commission.

Founded in 1971 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the University features Consciousness-Based education to develop students’ inner potential. All students and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique, which extensive published research has found boosts learning ability, improves brain functioning, and reduces stress. Maharishi University uses the block system in which each student takes one course at a time. Students report they learn more without the stress of taking 4-5 courses at once.

The University has a strong focus on sustainability and natural health, and serves organic vegetarian meals. The B.S. in Sustainable Living is MUM’s most popular undergraduate major.
