ABOUT US, OUR PHILOSOPHY, SUPPORTERS AND THE TEAM
Who we are…
The TUM Speakers Series is an independent, non-profit, student-run event series that plans and organizes events regarding topics that are relevant for students since 1999. Since then, we hosted more than 100 events with renowned speakers from all over the world.
What we do…
Our goal is to offer students the opportunity to gain insights from the working world and the careers of public figures, i.e. leaders and shapers. This should give them the best possible impulses for their own professional and personal development.
How we work…
Speakers enjoy the freedom to speak freely in front of students. This gives them the opportunity to also share very personal opinions. Companies find direct contact to potential young professionals and have the chance to find out what is currently moving our generation.
OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM
The TUM SPEAKERS SERIES was launched in 1999. It was founded by then-students Alexander Selzle, Clemens Berger, Dr. Jörg Siebert, and Prof. Helmut Schönenberger, who later established the UnternehmerTUM and is now a member of the Advisory Board. Gradually, it opened up to all students within the Technical University of Munich and other universities in Munich, and can look back on events with more than 100 speakers. These engage not only on business topics, but also talk about society, politics, and science; in short: all questions that are important in an academic environment.
After a relaunch in 2014 under the leadership of Simon Dietlmeier, the TUM Speakers Series was able to attract more and more foreign dignitaries to deliver speeches and to participate in discussions with students. It nowadays operates under the motto “from students for students”, as the TUM Speakers Series is organized by student volunteers from several departments at our university. Thanks to the commitment of every single member of the organizational team and the support of our university and department, the TUM Speakers Series enjoys a high reputation and is able to reach a large audience. It has become the largest student-run event series in Southern Germany and regularly attracts media attention.
