'This was an outstanding year for student achievements,' said Dr Craig Pearson, Executive Vice President of Maharishi University of Management.

He elaborated on the success of several university students.

A student in the PhD programme in management was named one of two students in the entire United States to be awarded the Lean Accounting Student of the Year. He received the award at the 7th annual Lean Accounting Summit in Florida, an event sponsored by the Lean Enterprise Institute. Then a few months later the same student received a $4,000 grant to support his continuing research.

In another achievement by students in the business department, two MBA teams competed in a national online business simulation competition. In the competition, they were to simulate strategic analysis and planning of a small business along a wide variety of metrics. The teams competed against 137 other MBA teams from top universities across the United States. One of the Maharishi University of Management teams placed first amongst all of those and the second team placed in the top 14%.

This year the university also sent a team of undergraduate students to a national mediation tournament.

Dr Pearson explained, 'Mediation refers to the process by which disputes are solved outside of the court, avoiding litigation.'

Maharishi University of Management was the smallest school represented there; they competed against state universities and other big schools. Despite stiff competition, the team came in third and one of the individual students placed sixth overall.

In addition, in a 10-state competition involving developing business plans for clean technology, one team of 4 students from MUM was one of 6 finalists.

Dr Pearson was quick to add, though, 'Our students are not only academically talented, but also have a balanced life.'

He mentioned the 'MUM Flyers Ultimate Frisbee' team, which won first place in a regional tournament hosted by Western Illinois University last autumn.
