A case study recently published by adjunct professor Mohan Gurubatham shows the progress of Maharishi University of Management's corporate MBA students at Neotel in South Africa.

Appearing in Procedia: Social and Behavioral Sciences, the paper illustrates how Dr. Gurubatham's approach of active learning combined with practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique helps students develop higher order thinking skills.

''These higher order thinking skills blended with technology are deemed paramount by ministries of education,'' Dr. Gurubatham said.

The Transcendental Meditation technique improves the cognitive functioning of the brain and increases creativity and intelligence. TM centres are operating in over 63 countries world-wide with people from every culture, religion, background, and all walks of life. In South Africa alone, over 30,000 learners have used this methodology to help pass school, as well as 5,000 higher-education students.

In one study in South Africa, for example, with 9,000 students, pass-rates at school increased on average 25% over a 3-year period on over 100,000 school marks, compared to a control-group of 12,000 students whose pass-rates fell 1% points. One simply would not see the high-pass rates one sees in partner institutions without this methodology.
