Management Team

The Management Team is responsible for managing and operating the CDTM Graduate Program and Research.
The Team consists of the current Scientific Directors, rotating each year, and the staff (CDTM Core Team) of the CDTM.
Together they define the strategy, design the academic study program and curriculum, find new research opportunities and are responsible for the organization of the center with tasks such as financing, marketing, recruiting and growing the network of partners.

Board of Directors

The board of directors is the organizational head of the CDTM. It consists of renowned professors from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) and the Technische Universität München (TUM). The board meets twice a year and takes the major strategic decisions. All board members are experts in their fields and have gained academic and business experience as visiting professors, entrepreneurs and researchers at renowned national and international institutions. The board appoints the Scientific Directors.


The academic life at CDTM is shaped by its high practical orientation and international character, which is reflected in the entire course program.
Renowned lecturers from both science and industry – from Germany and abroad – contribute with their expertise.
Thanks to the well-functioning CDTM network, many CDTM alumni stay in close touch with the center and return as lecturers e.g. in facilitation sessions or elective courses.
