What do we expect from ourselves?

The Research Center Finance & Information Management (FIM), which cooperates with the Project Group Business and Information Systems Engineering of the Fraunhofer FIT, is an internationally recognized research institution that combines excellent and practical education in a network of the Universitiy of Augsburg, the University of Bayreuth and the Technische Universität München. Our research activities cover various areas, allowing for considerable expertise in different fields of Business & Information Systems Engineering.


Through personal responsibility, self-determination, an open culture, sustainable competence development and targeted personnel development, we achieve satisfaction and a positive working atmosphere in the organisation.

To achieve this we follow 5 principles:

  • Promotion means for us that we support each individual in achieving their best performance through coaching and targeted competence development.
  • Initiative means for us active participation and taking responsibility for tasks.
  • Responsibility for us means to be open, honest, fair and helpful and to take care of a matter.
  • Sustainability means for us to be satisfied, healthy and enjoy working in a team.
  • Performance means for us goal-oriented and motivated to fulfil our tasks with the necessary quality.

What is special about working here?


Throughout their time at the Research Center FIM our assistants go through a life-cycle, in which they take over various tasks within the organization. This guarantees a holistic formation of our employees, taking into consideration their individual interests.

Coaching concept

Every new assistant will be assigned an experienced coach, who not only helps one in clearing any questions or doubts, but also follows one’s formation and encourages one regarding further possibilities for development.
