Maharishi University of Management - Achievements    Translate This Article
29 November 2017

The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring this article about Maharishi University of Management* alumna Abha Bhandair, who graduated with an Outstanding Student award in 2002.

Abha came to MUM in 1999 from New Delhi, India, to pursue an MBA degree. She wanted a career in finance and accounting, so in her senior year she decided to study for the CPA exam. At the time, MUM wasn't offering an accounting program yet, so Abha pursued the certification in her own time and passed the test on her first attempt.

''MUM was a great experience,'' said Abha. ''When I first started there, I didn't know anything about Transcendental Meditation, but I learned a lot, and the twice-a-day TM practice added some peace and quiet to my busy day-to-day life.''

In 2015 Abha took the position of director of equity administration and benefits accounting at Brown & Brown Insurance in Daytona Beach, Florida, and immediately decided to make changes. She streamlined and automated certain processes that were in place for decades, which caught the attention of the company's leadership.

For thinking outside the box and taking risks, Abha was nominated to speak at the Women in Leadership conference at Bowling Green State University in Perrysburg, Ohio, last October. She also received a Distinguished Presenter Award at the Brown & Brown Senior Financial Leadership Presentation meeting.
