The Bachelor's programme Management & Technology (TUM-BWL) gives you the interdisciplinary focus you need, putting you at a distinct advantage when it comes to shaping your career. The programme combines courses in management (70% of your studies) with options in engineering or natural sciences (30%). We also leave you plenty of room for specialisation and pursuing the areas that interest you the most. Our teaching draws on the latest research and state-of-the-art industrial practice. As well as lectures, we run regular tutorials and small-group seminars. Practical experience is ensured through project work. Structure:
basics in economics, law, management, mathematics, and natural sciences
electives in management and engineering
specialisation in engineering/natural sciences
international experience and communication skills
project studies focusing on practical or research issues
In their first four semesters, students will acquire basic knowledge in management (54 ECTS), economics (12 ECTS), law (12 ECTS), and mathematics and natural sciences (12 ECTS). The basics in mathematics and natural sciences prepare for the knowledge acquisition in their specialisation in engineering or natural sciences (42 ECTS). Practical experience is ensured through project work in the fourth or fifth semester (12 ECTS). In their fifth semester, students will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge or specialise in their desired areas of management or technology by choosing electives (18 ECTS), to improve their communication skills, or even to study abroad to gain practical international experience (6 ECTS). The programme will be completed by a written Bachelor's thesis in the sixth semester (12 ECTS).

an online job board, which provides details of current openings at companies - full-time jobs as well as internships, working student jobs, project studies, student assistant jobs at the faculty, or other part-time jobs (known of as "minijobs" in Germany)
At frequent career events with TUM School of Management's corporate partner companies, students can get in touch with Germany's leading employers.
A personal career coach may provide useful hints and advice on applying for jobs in Germany.
TUM's International Center offers a special programme tailored for international students, TUMinternational (TUMi). The TUMi programme provides help and advice for new students as well as a cultural programme with events scheduled both prior to and during the academic periods. The service desk of the Student Service Center is the first contact point for international students. We are here to help you with issues such as applications, enrolment, student ID cards, etc. Furthermore, we offer various three- to six-week summer schools combining academics with a rich menu of educational and social activities as a foretaste of university life. For international students who have been admitted to a degree programme, the Student Service Center offers a four-week pre-study course designed to help you get started at the TUM. Students new to TUM are invited to the service fair "Fit for TUM", which takes place before the semester officially starts, to get an overview of the various offerings of support services at TUM. See: http://www.tum.de/en/studies/international-students/. Learning German: While the language of instruction for many of TUM's postgraduate programmes is English, learning German and thus being able to participate in daily German life at a deeper level enriches the experience of studying and living in Munich. TUM's Language Centre offers language classes for students at all levels, both prior to and during the semester: See: http://www.sprachenzentrum.tum.de/en/startseite/.
Services and support for international students
In addition to support services offered by TUM International Center and the Student Service Center (SSZ), the faculty also has its own adviser for international students.
It is not easy to find a place to live in Munich - but it is not impossible either! TUM supports students and employees in their search for accommodation, providing personal advice, in-house listings and useful information to ensure that you can quickly find a place to call your own. See: http://www.tum.de/en/university-life/accommodations/. With high rents and not enough rooms in halls of residence, the Munich rental market is one of the most competitive in Germany - especially for students. The city boasts over 1.4 million inhabitants, with more people moving to Munich every year - many of them attracted by the excellent study opportunities that Munich has to offer. Student halls of residence usually offer affordable accommodation for students. The Munich Student Union runs most of these halls of residence.
