The Secret to ComPro Student Success

Educating Advanced Software Developers for Lifelong Personal and Professional Growth: 

Happy New Students from our August 2016 Entry

There are two major challenges facing working computer professionals:
1. Keeping up with rapidly changing computer technologies
2. Dealing with the stressful demands in the IT industry

Unfortunately, most graduate programs do not offer educational technologies for dealing with either of these critical challenges. “This is where the unique educational approach at Maharishi University of Management provides much needed solutions to these challenges,” says Greg Guthrie, Computer Science Dean Emeritus and Dean of Educational Technologies.

What makes MUM education unique?
The basis of this unique approach is the Transcendental Meditation® technique. Research shows that this simple meditation technique, practiced 20 minutes twice a day, greatly aids learning new things – just what a software engineer needs in order to keep up with the rapid changes.

Jeffrey Abramson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Maharishi University of Management

Jeffrey Abramson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at MUM, who has hired a number of our graduates, describes our special education this way:
“As an employer, I have hired 15 graduates of MUM’s ComPro and Accounting MBA programs, and have continually been impressed how well their MUM education prepares them for today’s demanding workplace.”

“MUM has a unique approach to education that awakens the students’ vast interest in learning, a special inner alertness, and deep confidence that is critical for success today. The core component is Consciousness-Based education. This inspires within each student a world of fresh ideas creating a humane and socially conscious leader capable of building a safe and prosperous world.”

More about Transcendental Meditation
TM is so effortless to practice, that even 10-year-old children learn to do it. Transcendental Meditation involves no beliefs or disbeliefs–it is not a philosophy, or a religion, or a way of life. Even skeptics benefit from doing TM when taught by a certified TM instructor. The TM technique was founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi over 60 years ago, and has been learned by more than six million people.

When we do TM, this results in clearer thinking, broader awareness, increased receptivity by students in the classroom, relief from stress, increased inner happiness and joy in living.

This natural development through regular TM practice is what gives our students and graduates the advantages of being able to keep up more easily with rapidly changing technology while naturally dissolving accumulated stress, and simultaneously becoming more resistant to future stress.

Proven success on the job

Ali thinks learning TM is the best thing he ever learned in his life.

Here’s what student Ali Alrahahleh, from Amman, Jordan, has to say about the value of Transcendental Meditation in his curricular practical training internship at Walmart Labs, Co. in Sunnyvale, California as a Senior Software Engineer.

“I have learned a simple mental technique at MUM, which I really have appreciated since coming to San Francisco. When my real life started, and my responsibilities accumulated, I really needed to have some moments of quietness in my daily routine.”

“Within all the chaos of the city, and my fast-pace life, my 20-minute meditations were awesome moments of peace, life and quietness. I could rejuvenate myself and my mind twice daily, and that twenty minutes gave me much energy to continue my routine, doing sports and working. It made me so creative and made my thinking vast. I think the Transcendental Meditation technique was the best thing I ever learned in my life, and now I see its effects much more.”

According to Ali,
“Stress is a major player in software programming; deadlines make people unstable, angry and desperate to finish on time. With the help of TM, I tend to be more focused and calm most of the time, and a high performer. People in my company asked me about the secret, so I pointed them to articles about TM.”

Published scientific research on the benefits of TM
Extensive published research has found that this effortless technique promotes a state of deep inner calm, and boosts learning ability and creativity.

More than 380 peer-reviewed research studies on the TM technique have been published in over 160 scientific journals. These studies were conducted at more than 200 research institutions, including Harvard Medical School and Stanford Medical School.

The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded MUM researchers more than $26 million for research on the effects of the Transcendental Meditation technique on health.

It’s no surprise that people on campus smile, greet each other warmly, and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Members of our highly diverse student body appreciate and benefit in sharing rich multi-cultural differences. The unofficial motto of MUM is, “The world is my family!”

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.
