I am delighted to have M.U.M as my conscious guide to the bright future. I have no doubt in saying that they have opened my eyes, they have given me the opportunity to obtain a higher education and work experience in the United States. Only my enthusiasm for the price. Its doors are always open for hidden beautiful minds who do not have the opportunity to obtain a higher education abroad.

I have no word to express my gratitude to Dr. Andy and The Accounting program offered by Maharishi University of Management. Whatever words I use, that will be insufficient to explain what I got from this University. This University opened my door of luck and fortune in USA, and now I have three most powerful certifications ( CPA, CFA and MBA) and working as a fund controller of 25+ billion dollar fund.

This school is truly one of the greatest places on earth. Such a supportive community here in Fairfield. The teachers are incredible and one of a kind. I highly recommend this university to anyone wanting to get a really great education in not only their area of interest, but in life and consciousness. MUM has changed my life, I finally opened my eyes to the beauty of life and that is because I came here. I can't emphasize enough on how amazing this university is. It is truly special.

Excellent university. All the courses you take are professional and very useful in your career. They prepare you in all aspects of life. Staff are very friendly and caring and tuition is fair, once you start working you pay it off pretty quick. I had so many friends for life that I got from there. I also refereed many friends, family members and others who are already successful from the program.

The school is really neat and unique with very kind, well-intentioned people running it. The "meditation as a way of life" and "consciousness-based education" is really amazing. I spent over three years at this college. I served as Student Body President, founded several clubs, and was a very active member in the school activities department. The quality of education, however, lacks greatly. In my heart of hearts, sad as it makes me to say against this really unique place, that I could have (aside from very few features) gotten a college education of this level from watching YouTube videos. I found there to be no competitive, real-world applicable models to gear me for real-world success. The labs were deplorable and barely existent. There were no helpful school organizations, career-oriented, or intensive educational programs. The courses and professors provided a fun college experience, but, certainly not an overall valuable one. Many departments have old, run-down equipment and facilities and are running on steam. Very sad. I stayed because of the people. Now, having been out for four years, I find it was a bad decision altogether and would not recommend it for those wanting to go to college for career or educational purposes as a focus.
