Research fields

The LMU Munich School of Management focuses on strategic research fields. These are assigned to five clusters in order to promote competitive and excellent collaborative research.

Clusters and cross-sectional topics

In the five clusters, new research impulses are set across institutions and competencies are bundled in transdisciplinary collaboration for cutting-edge research. Two cross-cutting themes connect the research fields through overarching socially relevant issues in the core areas of digital transformation and legitimacy & responsibility. In research and teaching, the clusters work closely with the Centers of Excellence.

Research Centers

In addition to the clusters, cross-cutting themes and Centers of Excellence, the research centers at the LMU Munich School of Management offer a broad field for gaining knowledge and play an important role in the development of new technologies. They drive innovations from which society can benefit.
