Bachelor Management and Technology (TUM-BWL)

In order to create a sustainable economy, innovative business models in the sense of the entrepreneurial idea as well as novel products and technologies are of particular importance. The graduates of the Management and Technology (TUM-BWL) study course with focus on “Renewable Resources” are predestined and qualified to manage sustainability-oriented products, services and processes in companies and to anchor these aspects in company management in general. Graduates can also use the skills they have learned to pursue their own sustainable ideas in start-ups.

Special in Straubing

The TUM maintains a centre for biotechnology and sustainability at the Straubing campus. Therefore, the focus on “Renewable Resources” is taught in Straubing, the others in Munich. All modules of the basic business studies course are offered in Straubing parallel to those in Munich. In principle, it is recommended to choose the place of study according to the desired focus.

More specialisation:

  • Chemistry (Garching)
  • Electrical engineering and information technology (Munich)
  • Computer Science (Garching)
  • Mechanical engineering (Garching)
  • Computer Engineering (Munich/Garching, 100% English)
  • Medicine: This specialization has a limited number of participants. The selection procedure will be announced shortly. Only students from the winter semester 19/20 and later can choose this specialization.

Corona: Effects on teaching and deadlines (as of 03.08.2020)

  • Since it is not predictable which restrictions will continue to be necessary at the start of the lecture period in the winter semester 2020/21, it is currently planned as a hybrid semester, combining digital teaching formats with face-to-face instruction. This is an effort to return the vital element of personal exchange to an excellent education as quickly as possible.
  • In the winter semester 2020/21, the lecture period starts on 02 November 2020, and will presumably end on 12 February 2021.
  • Enrollment for winter semester 2020/21 is possible until 07 December 2020.

Job description

The course of studies imparts essential methods and knowledge of business administration and at the same time scientific and engineering basics. The students thus acquire a coveted technical and social interface competence. Typical topics in the focus “Renewable Resources” are, for example, the use of natural resources, climate change and an environmentally compatible supply of energy and biogenic raw materials. The students should be enabled to use their acquired know-how not only for the concrete solution of operational problems, but also to make their contribution to these questions of society as a whole. The combination of business and technical knowledge provided by the programme is particularly in demand.
