Network & Ecosystem

Our partners profit from our large network within the financial service industry. Moreover, we foster a fruitful cross company knowledge exchange among our partners. Finally, partners can engage in lectures and get access to our latest research findings.


We offer our partners the opportunity to get in direct contact with our students. This allows you to promote and communicate your business activities and to present yourself as an attractive employer. In addition, our partners can advertise business and software projects, therefore getting hands-on support in meaningful projects and direct access to a broad pool of students at TUM.
