We offer lectures and seminars on technology and innovation management, organizing R&D, market penetration of innovations, and project management.

The overarching teaching philosophy is to prepare our students for wise, evidence-based management and sophisticated academic research. Therefore, especially our master level courses are strongly based on empirical studies.

Seminars and Exercises

In our research seminars we impart methodological competence (e.g. how to conduct scenario and patent analysis using practical examples) and give students the chance to work as teams on small research projects. In the bachelor exercises for project management students learn about software instruments and the concrete procedure of project planning and controlling.

Master- and Bachelor Theses

Within the scope of theses students will work on topics which are closely related to the research projects at our chair. Bachelor theses are centrally assigned through the examination office. The topics are assigned by the respective supervisor. Therefore please contact our coordinator Alexander Wirsich (see section  „Information on Bachelor Theses“).

Students that wish to apply for a master thesis can contact Prof. Schultz between 01. and 15.01. or between 01. and 15.07. of a year.  Here you can find all information regarding the application for a master theses. We are also willing to supervise theses in cooperation with companies.

Guest Lectures

Our lectures are complemented by guest lectures. Therefore we invite personalities from the world of science, business (e.g. SIEMENS AG) and politics (e.g. BMBF).
