The continuing success of Maharishi University of Management students in the MBA Accounting programme, highlighted through achievement in a business simulation competition, has put the programme in the spotlight.
Professor Andrew Bargerstock, Director of MBA Programs* at the university, answered questions about the length of the Accounting programmes and financial aid opportunities available.
Because the MBA Accounting programme is open to all who are interested, the length of time to complete the various tracks in the programme varies, depending on academic and professional background. On average, it takes 11-17 months and 60 credits to graduate, with the shorter length of time for those students with prior experience or academic training.
But for students with no accounting background, they start by taking a Financial Accounting course. That will set them up to take Managerial Accounting, then Intermediate Accounting 1 and 2. This is the level at which the student must be trained to take examination to become a CPA, Certified Public Accountant. After these courses, the students have a very strong theoretical and practical foundation.
With this foundation, these students (the 'Fresh Start' track) join the other two tracks at Maharishi University of Management: those with strong academic background, and a professional track for students with professional accounting experience.
Then all three groups study together in the same courses for seven months.
Professor Bargerstock remarked, 'That creates a very rich experience for everyone. . . . So there's a place for everyone here.'
Because it is a popular and competitive programme, financial aid is currently only available for those students on the professional track. This means they have at least two to three years of fulltime accounting work and a bachelor's degree in accounting or business.
These students spend seven months on campus, then spend the next two years in a fulltime professional position. This programme is called curricular practical training and has the advantage of allowing the students to gain professional experience in a U.S. company while applying what they learned in the MBA programme.
In addition, there is a special financial aid package available to these students.
* 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 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.
