Manage and More is the entrepreneurship scholarship of UnternehmerTUM - Europe's leading center for innovation and business creation. Each semester, 20 students with above-average commitment are selected to be trained as entrepreneurial personalities for three semesters. In the process, they learn to develop business ideas, shape innovation and develop their own leadership personality. The interdisciplinary network also enables cross-disciplinary collaboration.

  • Founding year: 2003
  • Number of active members: about 70 active and 650 alumni in the network

Vision:

We drive personal development in an entrepreneurial environment, so that together we grow into responsible leaders that create sustainable impact.

Mission:

Our scholarship empowers talented students to excel in responsible leadership. We make this possible by developing their personality with professional coaches and comprehensive workshops. By providing profound education in problem-solving methods, we enable our scholars to push impact-driven innovations within their own projects as intra- or entrepreneurs. In doing so, they are supported by an inspiring community that connects high potentials who grow together.
