Transferable Skills Training

The TUM Graduate School offers a wide range of courses that support you as a doctoral candidate to further develop your transferable skills and expand your interdisciplinary experience. The courses are designed as an additional qualification during your doctorate and offer valuable orientation for your next career steps. 

This Summer Semester's Focus: Free Your Entrepreneurial Spirit!

With TUM positioning itself as the Entrepreneurial University, we focus on entrepreneurship in this semester’s course program. Many research topics bear promising business ideas and we want to encourage doctoral candidates to see the entrepreneurial value in their research projects. Researchers usually already have all it takes to start a business: They are passionate for a specific topic, they find innovative solutions for existing problems, and with their research, they have the potential to shape the future.

With our focus topic and course selection, we want to embolden doctoral researchers to consider being an entrepreneur as a possible career path and offer the chance to discover their interest and potential in entrepreneurial endeavors. From inspirational talks to courses on how to generate business ideas and create prototypes, we cover a broad range of course topics in the field of start-ups and entrepreneurship.

In addition to our well-established courses, our offerings cover the following subjects:

  • Science Pitch Training
  • Serious Creativity - Techniques and Thinking Tools to Boost your Creative Thinking
  • Female Founders Talk
  • Entrepreneurial Leadership and Empowerment
  • How to Activate your Entrepreneurial Mindset
  • Basics in Business Administration
  • …and many more

Join us and free your entrepreneurial spirit!

Important Information on the Course Registration

From now on, our courses will open for registration gradually during the semester. This means that it is possible to register 8 weeks prior to a course start via DocGS. Please have a look at our website to see our full program or download our flyer. By subscribing to the TUM-GS Newsletter, you will be regularly informed about the opening of new courses.

The number of courses you can book is limited to 4 courses (including bookings on the waiting list). Once you have reached your limit, any additional courses will be marked as "not bookable". 

Should you be unable to attend the course, it is possible to cancel your registration free of charge up to four weeks prior to the course start. We kindly ask you to honor this deadline as your fellow doctoral candidates may be on the waiting list hoping for an opening.

We appreciate your cooperation and wish you a successful and safe Winter Semester 2020/21!

In order to respond to the changing situation, we reserve the right to change face-to-face offers into online courses – or, if that should not be possible, to cancel the course in question.
