Maharishi International University (MIU) alumnus Luke Hillis is a corporate trainer at Cambridge Investment and Research in Fairfield, Iowa. He had always wanted to be an educator and public speaker, inspired by Tony Robbins, but the path to his dream profession took some unexpected turns.
Luke grew up in Fairfield and, after graduating from Maharishi School, he enrolled at MIU, where the block system allowed him to explore different subjects until he settled on majoring in media and communications. He also wanted to earn a master’s degree, and chose MIU’s MBA program to improve his management and leaderships skills.
After finishing his MBA, he worked as an MIU admissions counselor for a year, spent four months traveling in Australia, and completed the Transcendental Meditation teacher training course. He then taught the TM technique in Philadelphia in a corporate setting before returning to Fairfield.
Later that year Luke was asked to become the program manager for the newly approved master’s in software development, where he was able to use his MBA skills. He managed student recruitment, budgeting, planning, and much else needed to launch the program. “It seemed like a huge undertaking, and it was an identity changing experience for me,” said Luke.
Luke spent three years running the program and then it was time to pursue his dream. He began developing his public speaking career, and six months later he got an offer from Cambridge, where he now teaches classes in customer service, time management, and mindset management, among others.
“I feel that my years at MIU, and being in the dome, gave me the groundedness, strength, clarity, creativity, nature support, and energy to continuously evolve and grow in all these endeavors that I've been up to,” said Luke.
Luke is now growing his private life coaching practice, in addition to designing new courses for Cambridge.
