What does this program cover?

Many companies today are looking for managers with a background in engineering or natural sciences. They need passionate individuals who combine entrepreneurial skills and a detailed knowledge of business with a solid understanding of innovation and technology. Our Bachelor in 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 program combines courses in management (70% of your studies) with options in engineering or natural sciences (30%). We also leave you plenty of room for specialization and pursuing the areas that interest you 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. When you are nearing graduation, our excellent Career Service Center is at your disposal to help you launch your professional career. We have strong connections to many leading firms, including BMW, BCG, Commerzbank, E.ON, Siemens and Telefónica O2 Germany.

The first 4 semesters communicate you the basic knowledge of the disciplines Management, Mathematics, Law and Economics.

Within the upper terms, our students get the chance to prove their team working skills during the module “Project Studies” and can choose a specialization in the Management or/and Technology area depending on their personal interests. 

Moreover, the module “International Experience & Communication Skills” gives students the possibility to acquire important soft skills, extend their language proficiencies and collect experience abroad.

Application and Admission

How does the application process work?

Admission requirements and the application procedure vary depending on the type of higher education entrance qualification you hold.

You must apply through the application portal at TUMonline. After completing the online application process, you will receive a list of documents you must submit to TUM in hard copy by the application deadline.

Applicants with an international higher education entrance qualification must have their documents reviewed in advance through uni-assist  

In detail:

What application periods and deadlines do I need to meet?

Application period for winter semester: 15.05. - 15.07.

An application for the summer semester is only possible for higher upper-division semesters. Application deadline: 15.01.

 Our online application portal TUMonline will create an application form and a checklist with the documents you have to hand in. The checklist shows which documents you need for admission and which for enrollment

You must submit the signed application form and all documents you need for admission before the application deadline

Please also submit the documents we need for your enrollment as soon as possible. If individual documents for enrollment are not available to you yet, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received. 

Please check your TUMonline account regularly, to see if we have any queries to your documents or if you have to amend one or more documents.

On what basis does TUM select applicants for admission?

Selection takes place through an aptitude assessment procedure. Aptitude assessment is a two-part procedure evaluating your ability to successfully manage the particular qualitative requirements of the bachelor’s program.

In the first stage, your overall secondary school grades, your grades in subject-specific courses, and any relevant practical experience or additional qualifications will be evaluated using a point system. Depending on the amount of points accumulated, applicants are either immediately admitted or invited to an admissions interview.

We assess your application considering your final Abitur grade (or GPA) and your four individual half-year grades (Halbjahresnoten) in German or English, Mathematics and an Advanced Natural Science.
Applicants who do not provide the individual grades in the mentioned subjects, we will assess your application considering the final grade (GPA) of your university entrance qualification and your performance in the admission interview.
