Maharishi University of Management, with its profound Consciousness-Based Education curriculum, is rising to be a channel for increased cooperation and goodwill between the United States and China. This year, eight Chinese undergraduate students from the University’s partner institution in China enrolled on campus. This increased enrolment was due, in part, to an easing in restrictions on issuance of visas to Chinese students.

Recently, government officials from the US and China signed a memorandum of understanding about jointly supporting expanded educational opportunities, as well as student and faculty exchanges. Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.) is looking forward to smoother visa application procedures and an expanded number of Chinese students.

M.U.M. began its Chinese programme in 2001. At that time, the University partnered with Oxbridge University Business School in Beijing, which later became Overseas Chinese College of the Capital University of Economics and Business.

Over 90 Chinese students at the partner institution have received M.U.M. degrees while studying in China; but many had had the desire to do part of their degree programme in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. Last year, one student received a visa. This year eight students from the China campus applied and all were approved!

‘We expect the enrolment in China to triple,’ said Dennis Heaton, Dean of Distance Education and International Programmes. ‘If the same proportion of students want to come here, we could see three times as many transfer here to complete their degrees.’

The Chinese students here will benefit from both the high quality courses at Maharishi University of Management, and also from the first-hand experience of Consciousness-Based Education.
