Leading entrepreneurship education programs at the CDTM

The Center for Digital Technology and Management (CDTM) is one of the leading institutions in the field of entrepreneurship education. CDTM offers the interdisciplinary add-on study program „Technology Management“, which is part of the Elite Network of Bavaria. The program is designed to give students from various backgrounds the tools they need to put their ideas into practice. As the program is very hands-on, the CDTM closely cooperates with renowned partners from industry, start-ups, and medium-sized companies. Research at CDTM focuses on new technologies of high economic relevance that are expected to be ready for the market in five to ten years.

The CDTM offers a unique approach to entrepreneurship education, combining digital technologies with management theory and practice. The CDTM curriculum is designed to give students the skills and knowledge necessary to become successful innovators. The program offers courses on topics such as business model innovation, digital marketing, and venture capital. In addition, the CDTM provides students with access to a network of entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and mentors.
