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.

Triple Crown accreditation is internationally recognized as a seal of quality for business schools.
