TUM School of Management
Where management meets technology
TUM School of Management at Technical University of Munich (TUM) carries out world-class research and teaching at the interface between management and technology. Established in 2002, we consistently top the rankings of business schools in Germany.
TUM School of Management attracts students and researchers from all over the world. Our job is to channel their enthusiasm for innovation and technology into real products by providing them with the management skills they require. We believe that entrepreneurship and social responsibility go hand in hand. These are the values that we pass on to our students.
TUM School of Management is unique in Germany. Our pursuit of excellence has helped us create a truly dynamic, inspirational and international community. We would like you to be a part of it.
Since its foundation, TUM School of Management has quickly established itself as one of the foremost business schools in Germany. We are highly rated for our outstanding teaching and research activities. For years, we have held one of the top positions in the CHE University Rankings. In 2012, German business newspaper Handelsblatt named us the best business faculty in Germany. Both are leading rankings of German higher education institutions.
TUM School of Management's interdisciplinary approach is focused on the interface between management and technology. We have almost 30 full professors and 250 other staff members who work in the School's own departments. They are also active in interdisciplinary and interfaculty projects with other parts of the university and external partners.
Our activities are structured around five academic departments: Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Operations & Supply Chain Management, Finance & Accounting, Marketing, Strategy & Leadership and Economics & Policy. Many of the professors working in these departments are internationally recognized leaders in their fields.
The School is also home to three research centers, run by the School itself and two organized jointly with other institutions. These centers bundle our research competences and link us with partners in industry for the purposes of research and innovation. The research centers run by the School are the Center for Entrepreneurial and Financial Studies (CEFS) and the Center for Energy Markets (CEM). The School is engaged to other research centers: the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (MIPLC) and the Center for Digital Technology & Management (CDTM).
At TUM School of Management we are passionate about teaching. Our Bachelor in Management & Technology allows students to combine management (70% of their studies) with engineering or natural sciences (30%). This unique combination means that they can go on to become business leaders with a firm grasp of technology, rooted in an interdisciplinary approach and backed up with solid skills in entrepreneurship, management and leadership.
In addition we offer three Master's programs, two of which are split into two distinct tracks: the Master in Management & Technology (Track 1 and Track 2), the Master in Management (Track 1 and Track 2), and the Master in Consumer Affairs. Our professors also teach on other Master's programs offered by Technical University Munich.
We welcome Ph.D. students. Our graduate center organizes postgraduate seminars, mentoring and networking opportunities. We also run a pre-doc program for international applicants.
We are active in the area of gender mainstreaming. In particular, we offer special support for female doctoral students.
In addition, we are committed to providing first-rate executive education – training for professionals already working in their chosen fields. We offer a general Executive MBA, an Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation and an Executive MBA in Business & IT. Beside this, we organize customized programs, training and e-learning sessions for professionals.
One of the unique things about TUM School of Management is our truly interdisciplinary approach. Building the bridge between management and technology, we enable our graduates to work side-by-side with engineers and scientists, ensuring that they speak the same language.
We place a strong emphasis on project work and international experience (for example in the form of exchange semesters). Courses are structured to guide students' development and accompany them into the professional world – indeed, we even have our own Career Service Center. Our solid network of business and industry contacts ensures that we recognize current requirements in industry and can react accordingly.
We mentor our students closely. Tutorials and seminars take place in small groups and we regularly organize information events. We strive hard to ensure the very best study conditions and to achieve a high level of student satisfaction. To this end, we carry out continuous student assessment of our programs and encourage feedback.
Our students are highly motivated, committed and hard-working. They benefit from the lively cooperation between professors, researchers, and former and current students. They love the international atmosphere and vibrant academic community we offer. And they are proud of our strong reputation around the world, as reflected in our excellent rankings.
