Note on the Founder

On October 21, 2002, as part of the inauguration of the new TUM Business School, Dr. Theo Schöller was honored for his generous donation. The president of the Technical University of Munich, Prof. Wolfgang A. Herrmann, awarded him the title of honorary citizen following a unanimously vote by the board of administration with the following words: "In thankful acknowledgement of his merits in the founding of the TUM Business School, especially his role in the expansion of the teaching and research possibilities in the realm of Technology and Innovation managment."

Owing to the endowment, the Dr. Theo Schöller Stiftungslehrstuhl für Technologie- und Innovationsmanagement (TIM Group) was founded. Our goal is to become an integral part of the TUM Business School through the combination of technical, scientific and economic issues and the consequent fostering of small and medium sized enterprises.
