A brief look at our Research

Research at TUM School of Management is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach and a focus on the interface of management, engineering and the natural and life sciences. Our academics use methods ranging from theoretical models and qualitative and quantitative empirical work to applied research.

TUM School of Management has Triple Crown status, meaning accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. It boasts leading positions in all relevant national rankings. In particular, it tops the list of German universities in the 2020 Wirtschaftswoche research ranking for the field of management, and is second only to St. Gallen among management faculties and business schools in Germanspeaking countries.

The School is also home to several “competence centers” that bundle resources and facilitate close collaboration with other institutions and corporate partners. These include the Center for Entrepreneurial and Financial Studies, the Center for Energy Markets, and – thanks to joint ventures with partner institutions – the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center and the Center for Digital Technology & Management. Our faculty is engaged in a broad range of cutting-edge research projects supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the German Research Foundation, the European Union and other bodies.
