In response to the ever-increasing role of information technology in organizations, Maharishi University of Management will offer a graduate-level certificate in Management Information Systems via distance education beginning this autumn.

According to Anil Maheshwari, who will direct the program, information technology is 4–20% of the expense in business, making it an important investment.

''It's important to understand how to make the best use of this technology and how to prioritize,'' he says. ''The technology is easy to buy but must be deployed effectively.''

Students will complete 18 credit hours over a period of two to four semesters. The program is intended for those who are programmers or who have technical experience.

The training will enable them to become managers, directors, and chief information officers.

''It's largely for those who already know technology and who are already working,'' Dr. Maheshwari said. ''They will be able to further their career. It will be especially suited to alumni of the (MUM) Computer Professionals Program.''

He said that organizations constantly face a plethora of decisions related to technology, such as whether to use cloud computing, how to secure their networks, whether to purchase new systems or develop in-house, and how to insure that the technology is actually being used.

The discipline of Management Information Systems teaches students to deal with business issues, processes, strategy, security, project management, resiliency, and data analysis.

Dr. Maheshwari said that companies must also consider using the Internet to gain a competitive advantage. The discipline of MIS teaches students to evaluate options such as using the Internet for educating their clientele, for e-commerce, and for self-service customer support.

''These new ways of doing business have many advantages,'' he said. ''Companies don't want to be at a competitive disadvantage by missing out on this opportunity.''

* All programs in the Department of Business Administration are taught as Consciousness-Based ManagementSM, which is the knowledge of the total intelligence of nature and its organizing power. By studying the theoretical and practical aspects of Consciousness-Based Management, including the Transcendental Meditation program, students personally grow in better health, clearer thinking, greater creativity, moral reasoning, and wisdom.
