Finance and Information Management, Master of Science (M.Sc.)

In our dynamic and highly complex world, change happens wherever scientific, practical, and social activity interact in synergy. Our "Finance & Information Management" (FIM) master's programme offers highly motivated students an excellent foundation for a unique, interdisciplinary career involving challenging positions of responsibility.

 

Profile of the master’s degree programme

Interdisciplinary, international, and individual - FIM is a programme unique in Germany, offered as a joint programme by TU Munich and the University of Bayreuth, providing in-depth knowledge at the interface of two topics of the future: finance and information management. FIM students have a wide choice of interdisciplinary courses on the basis of four options for specialisation: Quantitative Finance, Financial Management, Business & Information Systems Engineering, and Sustainability & Technology. In addition, soft-skill seminars and hands-on projects with renowned real-world partners are an essential part of the degree programme. This not only provides students with analytical and technical skills, but also with horizon-expanding and personality-building competencies to tackle diverse problems and develop novel solutions. The master's programme in Finance & Information Management is aimed at outstanding and exceptional students looking for a challenging master's programme.

FIM – a success story

The FIM master's programme was launched as part of the Elite Network of Bavaria in 2004, and has since developed into a great success story. Indeed, FIM is the only degree programme at a state university in the entire German-speaking region that has achieved a top ranking in the nationwide CHE ranking five times in a row. Moreover, many managers in positions of great responsibility are graduates of the programme, such as Bastian Nominacher, winner of the German Future Prize for Technology and Innovation.
