Maharishi University of Management now has 62 students participating in MUM degree programs in South Africa.

Since September a group of 28 students at Maharishi Invincibility Institute (MII) in Johannesburg, South Africa, have been taking courses taught by MUM faculty through distance education. The classes are conducted through the Adobe Connect videoconferencing system and MUM's learning management system. The program is a collaboration between MUM and MII.

Since May 2011, MUM has also been teaching undergraduate and graduate business courses to 34 students through a project for Neotel, a South African telecommunications company. This includes two staff from Maharishi Institute who are studying for MBA degrees.

This project is also a partnership with MII. Live videoconference classes connect simultaneously to Neotel offices in Midrand, Johannesburg, Capetown, and Durban.

Maharishi Institute CEO Taddy Blecher said this corporate school is just the kind of management development program that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi had planned with Maharishi Institute to support the growth of invincibility for South Africa.
