The Maharishi University of Management was founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as the Maharishi International University in 1971, in Santa Barbara, California. In 1974, the institute was shifted to the former campus of Parsons College in Iowa. It was given its current name in 1995, and currently occupies a 272-acre campus in Fairfield, Iowa.
The Maharishi University of Management awards bachelor's degrees in arts, fine arts, and science, and master's degrees in business administration, science, arts, and teacher education. Students can also pursue doctorate degrees in the fields of physiology, management, and Vedic science. Courses at MUM focus on a consciousness-based education, and both students and faculty are required to practice Transcendental Meditation daily.
The Maharishi University of Management's Department of Exercise and Sport Science organizes adventure trips featuring cross country skiing, kayaking, horseback riding, canoeing, and sail boating opportunities.
