In our academic activities, we are committed to various disciplines of economics and technically-oriented subjects (e.g., “information-driven Business Administration”, “Business Information Systems Engineering” or “Business Administration and Engineering”) across different universities.
The central objective of our education in all courses and programs is to familiarize our students with the latest methods and concepts at the interface of Financial Management and Business Information Systems. We want to promote both interdisciplinary skills and soft skills for our students. Our goal is to provide our students with the necessary functional, methodological, and soft skills they will need later in professional life (for example, as a project manager within interdisciplinary projects).
In order to impart interesting and relevant practical insights to students already during their studies, we always include the latest knowledge and experience from practical application in our courses. Thus, the students benefit directly from our network of renowned industry partners.
Our academic activities at the Bavarian universities – University of Augsburg, University of Bayreuth and Technische Universität Munich – are focused on issues within the overlap of Financial Management and Business Information Systems Engineering. Furthermore, we teach relevant topics in the field of Value-Based Management by means of Finance and Information Management methods.
At those three locations we aim at developing and evaluating innovative solutions. Thus, the FIM Research Center brings together findings and insights from science and practice of the subsequent chairs:
Prof. Dr. Hans Ulrich
Chair of Information Systems Engineering
& Financial Management
Prof. Dr. Torsten Eymann
Information Systems Management
Prof. Dr. Gilbert Fridgen
Professor of Information Systems and Sustainable IT Management
Prof. Dr. Henner Gimpel
Professor of Management Engineering
Prof. Dr. Björn Häckel
Professor for Digital Value Networks
Prof. Dr. Maximilian Röglinger
Professor of Information Systems and Value-based Business Process Management
Prof. Dr. Nils Urbach
Professor of Information Systems and Strategic IT Management
Subsequent to their bachelor programs, very gifted and ambitious students from diverse disciplines are able to enroll at the Elite Graduate Program “Finance and Information Management” (FIM), which is funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria. This Elite Graduate Program is mainly managed by the FIM Research Center in close collaboration with other renowned chairs at the University of Bayreuth and Technische Universität Munich as well as industry partners (e.g., Allianz Global Investors, AT Kearney, Deutsche Bank AG, Oetker Group, Siemens Financial Services, and UPM).
