TUM Graduate School – New Course Program for the Summer Semester 2021!


Dear Doctoral Candidates,

We are very happy to present you our new Course Program for the Summer Semester 2021!

This semester’s focus is “Free your Entrepreneurial Spirit!”.

Many research topics bear promising business ideas and we want to encourage doctoral candidates to see the entrepreneurial value in their research projects. Researchers usually already have all it takes to start a business: They are passionate for a specific topic, they find innovative solutions for existing problems, and with their research, they have the potential to shape the future.

We want to give you the chance to discover your interest and your potential in entrepreneurial endeavors.

From inspirational talks to courses on how to generate business ideas and create prototypes, our course program covers a broad range of topics in the field of start-ups and entrepreneurship.

We hope that our selection of talks and courses provides something for every one of you.

Important information regarding course registration

Our courses will open for registration gradually throughout the semester. This means that it is possible to register eight weeks prior to a course start. Please visit our website to see our full program or to receive further information on the course registration as well as our payment and cancellation policy.

Taking into consideration the global pandemic, currently about 50% of the transferable skills program are online courses and web-based formats. Depending on the developments, we reserve the right to change face-to-face offers into online courses – or, if that should not be possible, to cancel those courses. Changes will be announced as early as possible.

For any questions or suggestions regarding the course program, please do not hesitate to contact us!

We wish you all success and enjoyment in our courses!

With Kind regards,

Your TUM-GS Management Office Team
