Munich Dual Career Office
The Munich Dual Career Office (MDCO) offers newly appointed professors and their families practical support for their start at TUM and their new place of residence. We provide individual advice tailored to the respective needs. As a founding member of the Dual Career Network Germany, we look back on more than ten years of experience.
We help partners of newly appointed professors to build up a professional network and jointly develop strategies for job search and career development.
We assist with all the important questions regarding relocation, such as finding a new home, childcare, language courses, visas and residence permits.
We support a positive and speedy integration at TUM through our welcome event TUM Prelude and the German language coaching for international professors.
The MDCO understands itself as a door opener - our goal is to build up a sustainable professional network and to create optimal framework conditions.
The Deutsche Hochschulverband (German Association of University Professors and Lecturers) has awarded TUM as the first Bavarian university the seal of approval for fair and transparent appointment negotiations. Individuality, openness and clearly expressed appreciation are the values behind our work.
