Master in Management & Innovation TUM Track: Participants Prepare for Upcoming International Trip to China

Time flies! Our participants in the TUM Track of the Master in Management & Innovation are already well into their second semester and making crucial steps towards certification. From 1 April to 31 May, the group worked on a wide range of projects at renowned mid-sized to large enterprises in the innovation hub Heilbronn-Franken region.

On 31 May it was time to present the results of the group’s seven-week long project work in a session headed by Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar, TUM Chair for Information Systems, as well es representatives of participating enterprises.

Next up, the class is eyeing another important milestone on the way to their Master in Management & Innovation: From 17 June to 12 July, participants will embark on a four-week study trip to China that will cover the following agenda:

From 17 – 26 June, the TUM delegation will visit Beijing for lectures at the PBC School of Finance (PBCSF) and the School of Journalism and Communication (TSCJ) of our long-time partner school, Tsinghua University. The schedule also includes a visit to the European Chamber of Commerce as well as company tours at carmakers Audi, Daimler and BMW. The group will find a chance to explore Chinese culture during visits to the Forbidden City as well as Beijing’s famous side alleys, called Hutongs.

The visit to Shanghai from 27 – 30 June promises more insights into the region’s rich cultural heritage with tours of Yu Garden and the Ancient Wu Zheng Water Town, also known as the Venice of China.

As the last stretch of the visit, the group will stay in Shenzhen from 1 – 12 July for lectures at the PBC School of Finance (PBCSF) of Tsinghua University. Company tours at global corporations include the SOA (Shenzhen Outbound Alliance), the world’s largest drone manufacturer DJI, genetic technology enterprise BGI, electronics manufacturer Huawei as well as the city’s local start-up incubator.
