Professor Andrew Bargerstock, Director of the MBA Accounting programme at Maharishi University of Management (MUM), spoke to this fall's incoming class of graduate and undergraduate students.
Commenting later, he said, 'I wish you could just see the light in their eyes as they come into these classes and get so excited about being here at MUM again or for the first time.'
He spoke to the students about the success of the MBA department, as evidenced through consistently high performances in continent-wide business competitions. Teams from Maharishi University of Management have placed in the top tenth percentile in Capsim's Foundation business simulation in each of the last three years. In addition, the most recent competition saw all four teams from Maharishi University of Management place in the top ten.
Professor Bargerstock is currently teaching a course to 31 MBA and undergraduate students in Financial Accounting and added that it is a diverse group with many different backgrounds and countries represented.
He said, 'With all the students in all the different areas of specialization, there is some cross-fertilization that takes place. We want to make sure that everybody is exposed to the leading ideas in business worldwide.'
Judging by the department's success, this approach seems to be working.
The students love competition and having a chance to apply what they are learning in a simulated real-world experience.
' ''Competition is for the competent,'' we have heard Maharishi say. And [the students] all step up to this opportunity to engage in competition and have so much fun with it,' Professor Bargerstock commented.*
Of the successful results of the Capsim Foundation simulation competition, he said that this good news will also likely draw more students to come to Maharishi University of Management.
* Maharishi's expression encompasses a deeper layer of understanding of what constitutes 'competence', which is addressed as well through the Maharishi University of Management programme: Among other special features of the unique approach to MBA education at MUM, 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.
