MUM Now Offering MBA, Management PhD at Shanghai Jiao Tong University


 MUM’s graduate programs in management are now being offered in Shanghai, 
China, in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the oldest 
university in China with about 40,000 students. The first course, taught by MUM 
Professors Fred Travis, Yunxiang Zhu, and Lijuan Cai, began in October with 18 
students, half MBA and half PhD. The graduate programs are low-residency, 
oriented toward working professionals. The students go to campus on weekends 
for classroom instruction while also receiving instruction online. The classes 
taught by MUM faculty are offered in Chinese through an interpreter.


 More than half the instruction is by MUM professors and the rest by Shanghai 
Jiao Tong University faculty members from the Antai School of Business, 
considered by the Financial Times to be the top business school in China. The 
first course, World-Class Brain for Success in Life, connected principles of 
the Science and Technology of Consciousness to management. “The students are 
top-level people, such as top managers at the largest auto manufacturer and 
largest real estate business in China,” Dr. Travis said. “They deeply 
appreciate what they’re learning – a larger vision of the mind.” 

 The students learned about the levels of the mind and transcendence, and how 
this not only benefits the individual but also the organization. “They 
appreciated how Transcendental Meditation gives organizations an extra edge,” 
Dr. Travis said. “Their dean is very enthusiastic about the process.” 

 Focus on Brain Integration A new book by Harald Harung and Dr. Travis, 
World-Class Brain, was used in the course, with the first weekend of 
instruction drawing from the beginning chapters. This part of the book talks 
about the most important factor common to individuals who perform at a high 
level: greater brain integration. 

 The students then learned the Transcendental Meditation technique from 
Yunxiang Zhu and Lijuan Cai. Then the second weekend of the course, after the 
students had the experience of transcending, the course covered the latter 
chapters of the book: how to develop brain integration, peak experiences, and 
the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation technique for the individual and 

 “The students were very open to the idea of collective consciousness,” Dr. 
Travis said. “It’s part of their tradition that the individual is the basis of 
the family, the family the basis of the environment, and the environment the 
basis of society.” 

 Dr. Travis gave the students two assessments before they began Transcendental 
Meditation and after one week of practice. The students were shown to have 
reduced levels of perceived stress after just one week. 

 Shanghai Jiao Tong University is considered to be one of the top nine 
universities in China, comparable to the Ivy League universities in the U.S. 
Enthusiastic Students Dr. Yunxiang Zhu said the CEOs and top professionals in 
China are very eager to hear about consciousness and brain development. 

 “Our students enjoyed learning Transcendental Meditation and their 
experiences,” he said. “They appreciated the connection with Chinese 
traditional wisdom such as the teaching of the Dao and Confucious.” “They seem 
free and eager to grow and develop,” 

 Dr. Travis said. “They’re open to new ideas and are wanting to excel.” MUM’s 
programs are offered in collaboration with Shanghai Haizhe Education Service, 
an organization affiliated with Shanghai Jiao Tong University. While in China 
Dr. Travis traveled to Beijing and Taiwan to give presentations. He also taught 
a six-hour course in Hangzhou to CEOs and professionals.

 How does Chinese socialism currently view practice of meditation, like the 
packaging of M. Vedic Science? 

 Practicing TM itself? There was a cultivating relationship with Chinese 
academics and TM some while back. 
 Are those Chinese university people still okay within China?

 The Land that Failed to Fail

 China's Muslim camp spending 'revealed'

 Do they have acceptable space to be ‘spiritual but not religious’? within 
Chinese socialism?.
