Buddy Program Heilbronn

Buddy Program

A companion
for your studies

TUM School of Management has a Buddy Program for new students to help our newcomers to get settled in at TUM and in Heilbronn. The Buddy Program matches a group of first-year students with a TUM Buddy who supports them during their first semester at TUM School of Management. Buddies do an important job in ensuring new students to have a successful and enjoyable start at TUM School of Management.
