Going abroad


Besides TUM School of Management’s TUM SOMex (incl. ERASMUS+) program, Technical University of Munich also offers an exchange program: TUMexchange.

Please contact the TUM Global & Alumni Office for detailed information.


If you are not participating in a structured program such as TUM SOMex (incl. ERASMUS+) or TUMexchange for your study abroad, you will be classified as a “Freemover”. This means that you will be organizing your studies abroad yourself and will have to cover tuition fees. Useful information for Freemovers can be found here.

Please check your desired university at the Anabin Database to ensure that courses abroad can be recognized at TUM School of Management. Courses from universities with an H+ status are eligible for recognition. If your desired university has a different status, please contact the International Office via outgoing@wi.tum.de.

For further details concerning credit transfer, have a look here. For further support, please contact the International Office of TUM School of Management.

For the Registration of your freemover stay abroad in the Diploma Supplement, have a look here.
