On top of that, the TUM School of Management “Supervisory Award 2019” was awarded. Every doctoral candidate who is a member of the TUM Graduate School had the chance to nominate his or her supervisor for this award.

Those who were particularly convincing in the categories of a high scientific standard in the supervision and in courses for doctoral candidates, regular and intensive research meetings, the support for international research stays and conferences as well as an active support while developing the research question, were chosen to win the award.
