Master in Management & Technology

Due the current situation with the Corona Virus the application period for the winter semester 2020/2021 has been extended. This year the application period runs from April 1st until June 30th.
Corona Virus Update: Please note that you can find the most recent updates and information on how it is affecting operations at TUM here: https://www.tum.de/en/about-tum/news/coronavirus/. Unfortunately, we cannot give you detailed information regarding the application process (e.g. cancelled GMAT/TOEFL tests) yet.
We’re trying to make the application process as easy as possible for you. For this purpose, we have changed the structure of the admission website. The admission requirements and admission process, however, remain without any modifications.
For the essay topic for the winter semester (2020-2021) intake please read the document “How should I write the essay” under useful documents and information sheets

Application procedure

Your application will proceed through TUMonline. A guideline about the application in TUMonline can be found here.

If you did not obtain your first degree (usually a bachelor’s degree) in a country within the European Union (as well as Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Lichtenstein) you have to apply via Uni-Assist  in addition to TUMonline. Uni-Assist will make a preliminary evaluation on whether you meet the entry requirements for the Master program at TUM. Please note that the Uni-Assist application needs to be completed before the end of the application period, however, the document that Uni-Assist will provide you with (VPD), can be handed in later, even after the application period has ended. Please email to study@tum.de as a pdf-soft copy and include your applicant’s and application’s number.

We follow a two-stage assessment procedure to be able to select the best possible candidates for the Master in Management and Technology. In the first stage of the assessment procedure, candidates are evaluated based on their previous academic background. If an applicant’s eligibility is still questionable after stage 1, the applicant will move on to stage 2, where the academic background as well as the essay will be evaluated. The assessment process is described here in detail
