The university -- Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, is in the heart of Munich. LMU Munich is one of the leading research universities in Europe, with a more than 500-year-long tradition. We build upon our success in the Excellence Initiative, a Germany-wide competition promoting top-level university research, to enhance our research profile over the next years and strengthen our position at an international level.
The know-how and creative intelligence of our academics form the foundation not only of our success in the Excellence competition but also of LMU’s outstanding research balance as recognized by many national and international university rankings. Some 700 professors and 3,300 academic staff members conduct research and teach in the university’s 18 faculties, offering a wide and well-differentiated spectrum that covers all areas of knowledge, whether humanities and cultural sciences, law, economics, and sociology, or medicine and the sciences. As a genuine “universitas” LMU Munich has the unique opportunity and a deep obligation to deal with the ever more complex questions facing humankind, society, culture, the environment, and technology by creating interdisciplinary solutions.
The Munich School of Management's competitiveness is maintained mainly by our institutes. The institutes, for their part, are particularly characterised by the professors who hold them and, hence, determine the strategic alignment of research and teaching.
The Munich School of Management at Ludwig-Maximilians-University has established a set of committees and facilities that provide a range of services to assist students with the completion of daily tasks.
