TUM is one of Germany’s most successful technical universities, regularly achieving top ratings in national polls. Its long-term strategy is to evolve into an entrepreneurial institution – both in the way it acts and in the values it communicates.
Adopting an entrepreneurial approach, however, does not mean that the university is pursuing success in the conventional business sense. TUM aims to make academic research its “corporate” objective, and this is at the heart of its academic agenda, from teaching and research through building academic schools and departments to further and advanced training.
TUM has always been particularly proud of the strategic partnership with Siemens, managed under the CKI umbrella since 2001.
