The results of Maharishi University of Management's MBA Accounting programme in a North American business competition demonstrate, for the third year in a row, the quality of education and students in the department.
MBA students at Maharishi University of Management have entered the Foundation simulation competition, offered by Capsim, each of the last three years.
According to the Capsim website, the simulation is 'an immersive and engaging exploration of core business processes.
'Foundation business simulation is an engaging introductory simulation designed to teach all the essential elements of running a business: finance, the cause and effect relationship between functional areas, satisfying customer demands, and competitive analysis.'
Professor Andrew Bargerstock, Director of the MBA Accounting programme, described the results from Maharishi University of Management's involvement in the continent-wide competition.
Three years ago, in 2010, Maharishi University of Management submitted its first team. The team, a group of women students from Brazil, China, the Philippines, and Thailand, finished in the top 10 out of 93 other competing teams in North America.
In 2011, a group from MUM took first place out of 135 schools that were competing.
Now, in 2012, all four teams from the university finished in the top tenth percentile. Out of 97 teams, those from Maharishi University of Management finished third, fifth, seventh, and tenth.
Professor Bargerstock said, 'We feel this is an outstanding accomplishment now that we've placed at least one team over the last three years in this simulation.'
These results, he said, show a consistent excellence.
In addition, this year's results show that success is not a fluke. 'Now we're also showing that we're creating depth in what we're providing in the MBA programme, because all four of the teams placed in the top tenth percentile,' Professor Bargerstock concluded.
* Among other special features of the unique approach to MBA education at Maharishi University of Management, students learn the most widely practised, extensively researched, and most effective method of self-development in the world. All students practise the simple, natural technique of Transcendental Meditation each day to improve learning ability, optimize brain functioning, and reduce stress.
