What sounds like a vision is already a reality for David Wuttke, Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Management at TUM Campus Heilbronn, who uses virtual reality in teaching.

In the Technical University of Munich's podcast series "We are TUM", he talks to us about the benefits and current limitations of 3D spaces.

BMW CEO Oliver Zipse appointed TUM Honorary Professor

The Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG Oliver Zipse was appointed honorary professor at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) today. Zipse has been teaching courses on the transformation of the automotive industry at the TUM School of Management since 2019.

The "CEO Pitch" is the highlight of the seminar "Innovative Automotive Production and Current Transformation Fields", which Oliver Zipse has been holding at the TUM School of Management since 2019. Here, the BMW CEO not only teaches the theoretical basics of global markets, production systems and digital innovations. The students also develop their own analyses and strategies for current challenges in the industry in exchange with various departments of the company. The course regularly receives excellent ratings in student evaluations.

"Hardly any other sector is as crucial for Germany as the automotive industry is for the country as a business location. That's why the importance of its transformation extends far beyond the industry itself," emphasizes Prof. Gunther Friedl, Dean of the TUM School of Management. "This makes it all the more important that we train students who not only know the theory, but also the corporate world. No lecture, no matter how good, can replace teamwork on real issues."
