7- Accreditation and rankings

The university is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the oldest accrediting agency in the USA.[83] MUM is recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The university’s business programs (BA, MBA, and PhD) are accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). The university is also a charter signatory of the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC).

The MUM website cites high rankings on “benchmarks of effective educational practice” from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The 2002 NSSE survey, which obtained data from 135,000 students at 613 institutions, shows MUM was in the top 10% for: active and collaborative learning, supportive campus environment, enriching educational experiences and student–faculty interaction. MUM participated in the NSSE in 2002, 2005, and 2009.

The “Best Colleges 2013” Masters Midwest Category of U.S. News & World Report college and university rankings gave Maharishi University of Management a tier two rating, which places the school in the bottom 25% of colleges. The report listed its application deadline as rolling, its acceptance rate as 41%, its freshman retention rate as 80% and its student–faculty ratio as 12:1.

8- Consciousness-Based Education:

MUM is committed to achieving its goals through Consciousness-Based Education (CBE) which aims to unfold “creative potential” and create life in harmony with the laws of nature. CBE includes traditional subjects while simultaneously cultivating the student’s potential from within. As a component of Consciousness-Based Education, students and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique twice daily. Both Consciousness-Based Education and Science of Creative Intelligence (SCI) are said to include the personal experience and intellectual understanding of consciousness. Classes at MUM present subjects such as art, economics, physics, literature, and psychology in the context of these universal principles of consciousness. Before 2009 MUM freshmen and transfer students began their first semester with the 33-lesson SCI course, but it has since been replaced by a course called Science and Technology of Consciousness. The university president, Morris, has credited the knowledge and principles of SCI with contributing to the success of its graduates and SCI degrees have been awarded to Morris, Doug Henning, Mike Tompkins, Benjamin Feldman, the finance minister for Global Country of World Peace, best-selling author John Gray, and “Invincible Defense Technology” expert David R. Leffler.

According to the university web site, there are several “required courses” for a Bachelor’s degree at MUM and several are related to the topic of consciousness. They include: the Transcendental Meditation Program, the Science and Technology of Consciousness, Physiology Is Consciousness and Higher States of Consciousness. The 2011–2012 student handbook states that “students are automatically enrolled” in Development of Consciousness (DC) courses each semester and receive academic credit. The courses are required “for continued enrollment and graduation” and include the TM course and “the individual and group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs as well as the supporting activities to maintain the effortlessness of the practice and gain a deeper understanding”.
