Alumni Association

TUM Executive MBA Alumni Association e.V.

The TUM Executive MBA Alumni Association is the international platform for graduates of all programs of the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning as well as for partners and sponsors of continuing education programs. Our goal is to maintain existing contacts, to create opportunities for networking for former and current participants of the courses and to increase the transfer of knowledge on current, highly relevant topics from business and society. Because in the sense of the idea of lifelong learning, we do not see the completion of a continuing education study program as the end, but as beginning of a distinctive exchange of knowledge and experiences.

Are you a graduate of a continuing education program at the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning? You can join our alumni association here:

With the Christoph-Herrlich-Scholarship, the TUM Executive MBA Alumni Association supports applicants and students of the Executive MBA degree programs of the Technical University of Munich every year, who are particularly talented and in need. The funding is dedicated to our Alumni Association member Christoph Herrlich, who tragically lost his life during the attack on Breitscheidplatz, Berlin in 2016. With the scholarship in his name, we want to preserve his memory as former fellow student and friend.

A large part of the association’s membership fees (€70 per person and annually) go into the scholarship. All members and board members are involved on a voluntary basis. Here you can find out more about the scholarship and the application.
