Transcendental Meditation® Technique: the Competitive Edge for IT Professionals

According to Maharishi University of Management Computer Science Dean Gregory Guthrie, "The future of IT education in the US includes focusing on improving software by improving the software developers themselves."

The unique distinguishing benefit of MUM education is that all students and faculty practice a proven technology for developing their intelligence, creativity, problem-solving abilities, and general well-being. This technology, verified by nearly 700 scientific studies, and practiced by six million people from all major cultures and religions worldwide, is the Transcendental Meditation® technique.

"Personal development is key for professional success," said Dr. Guthrie, "and MUM is unique in providing this opportunity for students in the field of computer science, to augment their technical and academic training."

Students from all backgrounds enjoy TM.
