Cooperation Opportunities for Companies

Research meets Application

We have been supporting companies in various industries for many years by developing solutions for individual challenges in the areas of Business & Information Systems Engineering, Financial Management and Information Management by means of innovative applied research projects.

Furthermore, we offer companies the opportunity to contribute to the practical education of our students in the areas of Business Administration, Economics and Business & Information Systems Engineering and Business Engineering (for example, by means of guest lectures or joint seminar works). Also, numerous renowned partner companies support our master’s program “Finance & Information Management” (FIM), which is funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria.

One Team for Research and Application

Synergetic Interaction

In our research, we deal with challenging and visionary projects, often in cooperation with other renowned chairs and departments. Our projects are frequently supported by public sponsors such as the German Research Foundation (DFG) or the European Union. We are convinced that our practical orientation is beneficial to our research programs. Therefore, we cooperate closely with companies like Allianz, Deutsche Bank, Hilti, and Siemens. Such projects provide funding for most of our employees. Partnering with these companies, we develop innovative concepts based on the most current scientific findings in order to solve complex and individual problems companies face. The knowledge we gain through dealing with those problems in practice is reflected in our research and allows us to combine publicly-funded basic research and applied research in collaboration with our partners.

We focus on the analysis, the economic valuation and the development of innovative solutions
