Seven TUM School of Management students selected for the Bavarian EliteAcademy 2017
The Bavarian EliteAcademy is a foundation of Bavarian industries, which closely cooperates with the universities and universities of applied sciences in Bavaria. They support gifted and motivated students from all of Bavaria’s universities on their way to becoming responsible leaders in the future.
For the 19th edition of the EliteAcademy a total of 40 students from Bavarian universities were selected for this year’s class 2017. Of those students, 50% study at the Technical University of Munich and another seven of those are students at TUM School of Management, thus making it the largest group of students from a single faculty.
Prof. Dr. Gunther Friedl, dean at TUM School of Management, commented on the student’s success: “This shows that the study programs offerred at TUM School of Management are very attractive for top students in Bavaria.”
The Bavarian EliteAcademy program includes campus training sessions for several weeks during the semester breaks, an interdisciplinary team project supported by tutors, personal coaching by high-ranking mentors from the economy, study trips as well as internship placements at home and abroad. The curriculum is based on the following main components: personal development and leadership, business management, interdisciplinary and intercultural thinking and acting, ethics and responsibility, media competence, and entrepreneurship.
