Admissions Staff for Computer Professionals Program at Maharishi University of Management

ComPro Admissions: Welcoming New Students to our “Family”

During the last 12 months, 15,000 people from 185 nations applied online to join our unique and affordable MS in Computer Science with Paid Training & Financial Aid.

How to process so many applicants?

The first priority of our staff is in supporting every applicant at a very high level, making sure that all questions and concerns are answered in a timely way.

The immense job of processing this many applications in an efficient, accurate, professional and welcoming manner is the specialty of our Computer Professionals ProgramSM Admissions Department. When you consider the additional steps and requirements for admitting so many international students, with four entries each year (February, May, August and November), the achievements of our Admissions staff are all the more remarkable.

According to Chandra, Director of ComPro Admissions, “Our admissions team reflects the harmony and coherence which pervades all of MUM. Everyone is focused, dedicated, and lovingly supportive of one-another. It’s the ideal work environment, and our applicants and students really appreciate their admissions interactions.”

Preparing for new students

Preparations for new entries and registrations are especially busy periods. These activities include: last-minute acceptance of some U.S. students, making transportation pickup arrangements, checking out student rooms, meeting arriving students on campus 24-hours a day, preparing snack bags to place in student rooms, arranging room keys and meal passes, taking students to their dormitories, and organizing with numerous campus offices for two or more registration days in Admissions and the Enrollment Center.


Registration is like homecoming, where we finally get to meet all our special new students with whom we have been chatting, skyping, emailing, texting, etc., for several months or even years. When we finally meet them, students sometimes recognize us from our Facebook or LinkedIn profiles. They are so happy to meet us, and they overflow in appreciation. It’s a joyous and rewarding experience for all, as we welcome them into our global ComPro family! (See photos below.)
