    BELOW AVERAGE

    Maharishi University of Management graduation rate is below the national average.

    32% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Maharishi University of Management completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

    The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

    Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

      Overall Rating:

      MUM is very good a school with very knowledgeable professors. It is located in one of the peaceful areas in USA. It is very cold in Winter, but never experienced summer time. The school is fully accredited, and lots of financial aids for international students for MS. in Computer Science. You can graduate with merely 3 K (USD). Unbelieveable, you can never find such good schools on earth. Meditation is awesome, helps you a lot. Admission office is great a help in all kind of matters. They are very gentle.However, foods very bad. Always you need to eat some Indian or veggie foods that taste awful, which I hate the most or you gotta go 4 miles away, and spend more than 1 hour to have your lunch. Study is very fast pace, which you can barely learn something scientific. You just learn the techniques but not science. Sometimes how well you learn one particular course depends on what professor teaches the course. Some professors are very experienced and knowledgable but cant explain well, some of them are lazy, some very sensitive.If you are a beginner, your purpose is to learn and improve your CS skills, MUM is not suggested but if you have very good experience but you are international a student looking a way get in USA and your sole purpose is to find a good job to work for in USA, MUM is strongly suggested.Overall, you can enjoy and have fun in MUM. Life is good. Fairfield is one of the peaceful and a relaxing city I have ever found in USA
