From 11 – 21 February, participants in the TUM Track of our Master in Management & Innovation completed the fourth and penultimate module of their first semester. Under the heading “Investment & Financial Management”, the group obtained exclusive insights from seasoned investment experts and visited several global enterprises.

Starting off the module, a Career Coaching session presented by Emrich Consulting presented the latest “Innovative Trends in Recruiting”. This was followed by a presentation on important concepts in global exchange markets such as “Company Valuation”, “Cost of Capital” and “Capital Structure” by Prof. Dr. Christoph Kaserer, TUM Chair of Financial Management and Capital Markets.

During a visit to a traditional vineyard in the Heilbronn region, Weingut Hirsch, the group was treated to a presentation of the importance of family businesses. The comprehensive module was completed with presentations on “Value Based Management” by Prof. Dr. Gunther Friedl, “Risk Management” by Steffen Windmüller and “Interest Rates” by Prof. Dr. David Wozabal.

On 20 February, the group paid a company visit to automobile parts supplier Magna Powertrain in Untergruppenbach. The global company ranges among the leading suppliers to the international automobile industry with a focus on the construction, development, testing and manufacturing of power trains. Following a company presentation, Oscar Pascual, in charge of Engineering Controlling at Magna Powertrain gave a lecture on “Investment and Financial Planning” followed by a round of questions. Completing the successful outing, Dominic Diessl provided a tour of the Prototype & Testing Center.
