Recruit you for what?International students come on F-1 Visa which allows them on-campus jobs for 20 hours per week. you cannot work in any company or outside campus. That is a very small amount. cost of living, tuition/fees is high. How much scholarship/tuition waiver are you getting?

Very very thanks for your prompt reply,
that is their quote about the job and salary :

"The University has relationships with many of America's leading technology companies, but you can apply to work in an IT position at any U.S. company, and you can negotiate your own salary with help from the University.
Your salary will depend on your skills and experience, but first year earnings are normally US $60,00070,000. Our students have received positions at more than 1000 U.S. companies, including Microsoft, Google, IBM, Sun, Amazon.com, Oracle, General Electric, Cisco, and Hewlett-Packard."

and its link:
MS in Computer Science program with paid internship | Maharishi U.
Paid training at a U.S. company | Maharishi U.

would you please give my some advice about this issue?

No University can guarantee any job. for foreign students, it depends on H-1B visa which companies file for hiring a foreigner. Frankly speaking, dont think too much that any course will guarantee a job. It will be a risk.

Most folks attend MUM to achieve personal enlightenment. It's never struck me as the kind of university one would attend in the hope of attaining lucrative employment.

You are right but because this is a university with .edu suffix I think they should be committed to the things which are written in there website,I just want to know that are there any reference organisation which I can ask them about?

I just want to continue my education as well as affording its expenditure by working and the other factors are not such important to me.
Moreover, how can I contact to some one who have studied in this university to get the best decision?

Very very thanks for your cooperation,looking forward to hearing you.

You are from which country? If you are from India, search google if there is any Indian student association of that university. then you can contact some international students studying there.

I am from Iran. I searched about it but I could not find one. Moreover, it will be a good idea if I can ask a governmental institution to verify their authentication and their claims.

All they are talking about are internships with industrial companies. Like any other university's internship program, you would have to apply to those companies and get hired. There is nowhere on the website that says you are guaranteed to get an internship, nor does it promise you any particular salary if you do. There are really no claims to verify with a governmental institution, because they don't actually promise anything.

Honestly, you'd be better off applying to the M.S. programs at traditional schools and trying to get a research assistant position.
