Therefore, our goal is to attract talented and ambitious students from all over Europe and other parts of the world with study backgrounds in business and informatics (computer science) or related integrated programs. The MMT is a four-semester Master of Science (M.Sc.) program fully taught in English (no German language skills required). It is jointly offered by the Munich School of Management and the Institute for Informatics of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU). There are no tuition fees for study programs at the LMU.
