Industry-related talent management has always been an integral part of TUM International’s mission. We do that by orchestrating and managing tailor-made mentoring and skill development programs for TUM students, in close partnership with companies. This is important as, for more than half of TUM’s students, the foundation for a future career is being set already during academic studies. Therefore, fostering close interaction between students and potential employers in the private sector opens up exciting possibilities for future employment.
Such programs make it easy to gain practical experience and insights into companies, to gather career-relevant skills and to build up a professional network early on. They also create value for companies scouting for talent and seeking to build long-term employment relations with young graduates.
By the end of 2021 more than 1,000 students have participated in our talent management programs, following a highly competitive selection process. Some of the companies that joined our mentoring programs are Google, Intel, Knorr-Bremse, Microsoft, Rohde & Schwarz, Wacker Chemie, MaibornWolff, attempto, FAS, IT4IPM, Siemens.
