Steve Langerud, who will work with Maharishi University of Management on global development and workplace success programs, believes that MUM graduates are uniquely positioned for career success. As the former dean of Experiential Education at Grinnell College and director of professional opportunities at Depaw University, Langerud has spent the last 20 years counseling thousands of alumni and students on career issues.

A nationally known workplace consultant, Langerud has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, NPR, TIME, Voice of America, and He works frequently with colleges, nonprofits, government agencies, and businesses, and has appeared on TV and the Web speaking about employment and workplace topics ranging from resume writing to using job boards to developing a strategic career plan.

''New graduates face the big questions,'' says Langerud. ''What can I do with my degree? With my life? How do I sort everything out?''

Langerud sees MUM students as having a strong advantage due to the school's focus on inner development. Consciousness-Based Education, which was pioneered at MUM, emphasizes the development and cultivation of one's total potential and works side by side with rigorous coursework in traditional academics which are taught in a way that relates back to the Self.

Many employers in 2013 are seeking college graduates who possess a breadth and depth of abilities and potentials rather than necessarily a tight focus in a single subject area. . . . Employers are 'hungry' for the very qualities that Consciousness-Based Education cultivates such as critical thinking, creativity, clarity, problem solving ability, relationship building, and collaboration.
