Open to enrolled MBA students at the McDonough School of Business and selected others at Georgetown University when space is available, this course is run twice a year during the academic term.
Students learn the history of contemplative practices, the latest scientific evidence for their effectiveness, and the appropriateness of meditation for leadership.
Starting a practice
By the end of the course, students will have established a personal practice of meditation and will be equipped to continue deepening it throughout their careers.
Leading from the Center
Taught by Gregory Robison and guest lecturers
Six hour-long sessions introducing meditation to organizational leaders, managers and staff at all levels.
