Bridging traditional divides at the TUM School of Management

TUM School of Management, firmly rooted within TUM's technological and entrepreneurial ecosystem, places a unique focus on the interface between management, engineering, and the natural and life sciences. The School's goal is to bridge the traditional divide between the fields of management and technology.



The School sees its role as educating the leaders and decision-makers of tomorrow. Like TUM, it is committed to excellence. Since its foundation two decades ago, it has been consistently ranked as one of the top business schools in Germany and beyond.



TUM School of Management is in the top one percent of business schools worldwide to hold Triple Crown accreditation by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), the European Foundation for Management Development (EQUIS), and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Triple Crown accreditation is internationally recognized as a seal of quality for business schools.

"Since our beginnings 20 years ago, our goal has been to bring together two worlds"
Prof. Dr. Gunther Friedl, Dean of TUM School of Management

Our EMBA students at Google’s headquarters in Munich

Our Executive MBA and Executive MBA in Business & IT were invited to an event organized by Google and McKinsey on the future of Electric Vehicles at Google’s headquarters in Munich. 
"I have met and connected with a few people from the event during the get-together and definitely would like to pick up the conversation in the future. Maybe we will have a chance to collaborate, that would be very exciting”, says Heidi Liu, EMBA BIT student.

Richard Bergmann also an EMBA BIT participant, adds: " I very much enjoyed exchanging ideas and thoughts with EV experts across industries. Having experience in the automotive industry, I found it fascinating to learn how the rapidly growing EV market could disrupt the established automotive retail industry. New EV manufacturers innovate on data-driven customer experiences and startups emerge in the EV ecosystem with entirely new business ideas."
Thanks to Michael Complojer and Denis Karaman from Google for letting our Executive MBA students be part of this event and enabling a space of networking in such a welcoming atmosphere!

The 1st TUM School of Management Ph.D. Summer School at TUM Campus Heilbronn is a great success

"The 1st TUM School of Management Ph.D. Summer School at TUM Campus Heilbronn is a great success," says Professor David Wuttke, one of the Summer School's co-organizers.

Regarding his course on the review process, he observes, "I am impressed with the student's progress in my course. Having reviewed papers virtually the first time on Monday, they already created strong reviews by Friday, meeting high-quality standards."

Other topics include the economics of digitization and information by Professor Jens Foerderer, Field Experiment: Start to Finish by Professor Philipp Lergetporer, and Empirical Sustainability Analytics by Professor Michael Stich.

"Bringing together doctoral students from all TUM campuses is a unique opportunity for us to learn with and from each other. In particular, the social program is a perfect occasion for networking with peers," says Rossella Rocchino. She participated as one of TUM's first academic training program (ATP) scholarship recipients during the first week.

This Ph.D. Summer School was a true inter-campus collaboration, including the support and organization of Carina Strohmeier, Professor Alwine Mohnen, Professor Joachim Henkel, and Professor Gunther Friedl.

Based on the initial feedback, we plan to expand this format further and offer the next Ph.D. Summer School in September 2023.
