TUM School of Management advertises 13 professorships for the new TUM Campus Heilbronn

TUM School of Management is currently at a momentous point in its history. In February 2018, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) signed an agreement with the Dieter Schwarz Foundation (DSF) to create a new teaching and research facility in the city of Heilbronn. This is one of the most important endowments in the history of German universities. DSF will perpetually fund 20 new professorships for business studies, complete with equipment and infrastructure: 13 of them at the new TUM Campus Heilbronn and seven in Munich. This makes TUM the first university in Germany to establish an additional campus in another federal state. For current and future faculty, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help build up a new campus with new areas of specialization in research and teaching. TUM Campus Heilbronn will focus particularly on the areas of digital transformation, family-run businesses and entrepreneurship – areas for which the local region is particularly known.

Research at the TUM School of Management is characterized by its interdisciplinary approach – theoretical innovation along with ground-breaking applied research taking place at the interface between management and engineering and the natural and life sciences. Within the framework of this strategic orientation, research is undertaken in the areas of Innovation & Entrepeneurship; Marketing, Strategy & Leadership; Operations & Supply Chain Management; Finance & Accounting; Economics & Policy. With the establishment of additional competence centers, TUM School of Management continues to increase its research strengths through more intense cooperation with other research establishments and corporate partners.
