Description of course of studies

Consumer Affairs is a world-wide rising field in research and higher education. It analyses consumers in their economic, social and ecological environment. The demand for higher education graduates in this field is very high, especially from corporate and governmental sectors as well as from consumer organizations. Beside the theoretical and methodical basics of Consumer Affairs, students can choose modules from specializations “Consumer, Technology and Innovation” and “Sustainable Consumption”.

Consumer, Technology and Innovation
This academic focus deals with the consumer in context of the development of technologies, products and services within markets and inside companies. For instance, there the issues for driving innovations will be discussed and the role of the consumer in this process. Besides, the economic and legal aspects related to this topic will be considered, too.

Sustainable Consumption
Over the last decades the topic of sustainability has become increasingly important. Water, energy and food are limited commodities. For this reason careful utilization of them is indispensable for humanity. Everybody is directly involved by consuming daily goods and services. This specialization deals with topics about consumer behavior, but also with the impact of companies and governments with regard to the concept of sustainable consumption. In this context, students deal with topics of sustainable consumption and marketing.

Double Degree
Students have the opportunity to receive two Master of Science degrees (double degree) if they meet the admission criteria at TUM School of Management and the chosen partner university.
