Bertelsmann Stiftung, Heinz Nixdorf Stiftung and Daimler Fonds are the initiators of the Executive MBA program. Our foundation partners support the continued development of the Executive MBA program in an advisory capacity.
Their goal is to prepare and equip managers and executives for their entrepreneurial or organizational roles. To advance the responsibility of businesses and organizations in a modern society with self-imposed ethics, and open and sustainable communication and management culture, our partner companies work together.


TUM has established close strategic cooperation with Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, over many years. As a result, our Executive MBA participants get to study at one of Asia’s most renowned universities.

The two-week stay in Beijing provides an overview of one of the world’s most dynamic economies and its political, historical, and cultural features. The visit places particular emphasis on the specifics of communications in China in the media as well as with business partners. In addition, company visits and evening sessions with experienced entrepreneurs paint an authentic picture of economic life in China.

We are exploring further ways our participants can make an impact on the international stage and we constantly look to develop the program in the areas of sustainability and ethical business practice.
