Through a joint course catalogue, students of the EuroTeQ partners have the opportunity to attend virtual courses at the partner universities. TUM students can take courses at DTU, TU/e, L'X, Technion, TalTech and CTU – and also at TUM itself.


Find out more about the program here.








If you are not participating in a program organized by TUM, such as TUM SOMex (incl. ERASMUS+) or TUMexchange for your study abroad, you will be classified as a “Freemover”. This means that you will be organizing your studies abroad yourself and will have to cover tuition fees. Useful information for Freemovers can be found here.


Please check your desired university at the Anabin Database to ensure that courses abroad can be recognized at TUM School of Management. Courses from universities with an H+ status are eligible for recognition. If your desired university has a different status, please contact the International Office via outgoing@mgt.tum.de.


For further details concerning credit transfer, please have a look here ("How to get credits transferred" in the section: "During your stay abroad"). For further support, please contact the International Office of TUM School of Management.

Summer and winter schools

Many universities run regular programs open to all international students. These summer schools and winter schools provide participants with additional skills and knowledge in your study field and can be a good addition to your career profile.



We offer a list of current summer and winter schools, but additionally you may also look for announcements of summer and winter schools at the websites of foreign universities, search for summer courses in TUM’s International Opportunities Gateway or under www.summerschoolsineurope.eu.
