Education must be a key part of any strategy to imbue future entrepreneurs and business leaders with an appreciation for the ERS dimension of their work. As part of the School’s ERS strategy, we developed a range of curricula that raise awareness among our students aware for topics of responsible management, ethics, and sustainability, and provides the necessary toolkit for students to become responsible future leaders who can successfully straddle economic, ecological, and moral constraints. The following programs offered by the various chairs of the TUM School of Management, inculcate ERS objectives into their study curriculum.
