The subject "Consumer Affairs" is a world-wide rising field in research and higher education. It analyzes consumers in their economic, social and ecological environment. Beside the basics of Consumer Affairs in the first semester, students can specialise in the research fields “Consumer, Technology and Innovation” and “Sustainable Consumption”.
The Master's Program in Consumer Affairs (MCA) is located at TUM School of Management. Due to its interdisciplinary focus there are three other faculties involved (TUM School of Life Sciences Weihenstephan (WZW), TUM School of Education, Faculty of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering). The language of instruction is English.
MCA program starts every year in October and takes four semesters (120 ECTS). MCA at TUM School of Management has been integrated in the European Master’s Programme in Consumer Affairs (EURECA) which is also offered by Wageningen University. There are special cooperations with the Aarhus University, Warsaw University of Life Sciences and the University of Bologna. From the academic year 2015/16 on, EURECA will be transferred into a new consumer oriented double degree program between Wageningen University and Techische Universität München and into the general mobility programs of the partner institutions involved.

- studying in an international atmosphere
- exchange semester(s) at one of the European partner universities (e.g. double degree program)
- individual specialisations
- studying with a strong research focus
- close contact to the Alumni Club “Association Friends of Consumer Research at TUM - GFV”
