Research Cooperations






Professional Education

If you would like to actively support our students on their journey and get in touch with them, there are a number of ways to do so.

  • Project studies are a research or practical project carried out by a student team in collaboration with your company and an academic chair of TUM School of Management. Companies benefit from the practical results of the project and from the academic excellence of one of Europe’s best business schools.


    For more information on your company benefits see our flyer.

  • We support young talents in realizing their full potential and want to help them focus on their studies. At the same time, we want to create more equal opportunities for highly talented students and specifically promote the development of talents who are willing to perform and who would otherwise not be able to afford to study.


    If you would like to support us in this endeavour, please contact us for more information.

  • The involvement of corporate partners in our lectures is a matter of concern to us in order to link theory and practice more closely. Both sides benefit from the exchange: while students appreciate the insights of top-level business leaders in practice, practitioners meet their employees of tomorrow. Our honorary professors and doctorates are an important part of our network with industry experts.


    Please contact us if you would like to support us in bringing together theory and practice.

Industry collaborations in teaching

Our students benefit from our collaboration with C-level practitioners with whom we have regular exchanges. We believe in the close link between academia and industry to prepare students for their future role in the economy.
