The MMT Master's programme comprises four semesters (starting annually in the winter semester) in accordance with the general schedule of the LMU. Each semester accounts for 30 ECTS credit points. Thus, students have to acquire 120 ECTS credit points in total.

The course structure consists of five major building blocks:

Management: Courses address digital technologies from a business perspective.

Management and Digital Technologies: Courses integrate contents from business and informatics. Course formats are highly interactive and will be partly conducted as "project courses" in collaboration with industry partners.

Digital Technologies: Courses address digital technologies from a technological perspective.

Electives: Students have the opportunity to elect courses from business and informatics according to their preferences and interests. A broad catalogue of courses is provided by the business and informatics faculties. Each student needs to acquire 24 ECTS credit points with electives, thereof at least six credit points in each discipline.

Finale Module: Students write their Master's thesis about a relevant topic at an Institute from the Munich School of Management or the Institute for Informatics.

Additionally, foreign students with low or no German language skills will be given the opportunity to participate in intensive German language classes that help them to acquire a solid level of German during their MMT studies. The first course is free for students.

Semester abroad: Students can also enjoy a semester abroad at one of the LMU's numerous partnering universities. Semesters abroad are also funded by the European Union with the ERASMUS programme. Courses taken and passed at foreign universities will be counted for the Master's.

Applicants are required to submit their application via the online application form. This form of application requires in addition to the information about yourself, education, practical experience and your transcripts, an essay assignment. This essay is designed to determine whether you have the skills and knowledge that are pivotal for you to succeed in the MMT programme. If you are unsure whether your study background is eligible for applying to the MMT, you can use the form on our website for free eligibility assessment.

If your application complies with the stated requirements, you will be invited to participate in a (consecutive) two-day online assessment event, normally during June of the respective intake year. On the first selection day, you are required to take a written examination which contains open questions in the areas of both business administration and informatics. During the second selection day, you will have an hour-long oral examination, which consists of a group interview with four candidates. This examination will be held by two professors with a background in business and informatics. You will be accepted to the MMT programme if you pass both the written and the oral examination.
Absence at the selection event automatically leads to a rejection of your application.

Possibility of finding part-time employment

In Germany, students can work up to 20 hours per week tax free (employee salary is between 12-25 Euro per hour). This work-type is called "working-student" and applies to any person enrolled at university for a Master's or Bachelor's. It is therefore possible to work along side the Master's programme. Many students do so in IT, consulting or manufacturing industry in Munich.

There are several exclusive resources where MMT students can search and apply for highly attractive jobs and internships, particularly in the Munich area:

  • "IBC Stellenbörse" (available in German only)
  • LMU Management Alumni Jobworld (available in German only)
  • "Student und Arbeitsmarkt" – the career service of Ludwigs-Maximilians-Universität München (available in German and English)

The International Office helps visiting academics, PhD students, and postdocs who are travelling to Munich for a set period of time to find accommodation.
