Learning: A lifelong endeavor

The working world is changing faster and more unpredictably than ever before, constantly throwing up new challenges to which professionals in science and business need to react.

We are challenged to meet these changes flexibly and constructively, to open up new fields of knowledge and to expand our competencies. To do this, we need to be lifelong learners.

Lifelong learning encompasses all the activities we undertake to better master current and future challenges by expanding our knowledge and skillset. TUM offers the perfect environment for lifelong learning: With the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, we offer a wide range of opportunities to support lifelong learners.
