The foundation of the TUM Business School led to the establishment of the new and so far unique course Technology and Management oriented Business Administration (TUM-BWL; since winter term 2008/2009 as Bachelor- (B.Sc.) and Master program (M.Sc.)), which combines a modern business administration education and a well-founded knowledge of technical and natural sciences. Furthermore, a postgraduate Master of Business Administration (MBA) is offered for graduates of the natural sciences and engineering.
The Chairs of Entrepreneurial Finance offer various courses for both study programs. They provide essential knowledge in finance and economics for entrepreneurs and the management of entrepreneurial firms. An overview of the offered courses is available at "Lectures". A main goal of this course offer is the balanced mix of scientific standard and a strong orientation towards practical application, which is particularly achieved by inviting industry partners and founders to each course. Furthermore, two acknowledged industry experts are visiting lecturers with their own courses in our educational program. The main objective of our teaching program is to prepare the students in the best possible way for their later professional life or possibly the start-up of their own company. All courses and seminars of the major Entrepreneurial Finance are conducted in English.
The high teaching quality is reflected in very good evaluation results and several honours achieved by the staff of the chairs and students of the major. Professor Achleitner was awarded the “Best Teaching Award” of the Business School for outstanding accomplishments in 2003. This award was given to her former colleague, Dr. Christian Fingerle, in 2005. For high quality and the high effort in education Professor Achleitner was awarded with the “Preis für gute Lehre 2004” (Best Teaching Award) by the Bavarian Ministry for Science, Research and Arts.
