From theory to practical application

The TIME Research Area is particularly interested in a meaningful exchange with corporate partners and research institutions. We regularly cooperate with companies and research institutions in a number of ways ranging from collaborative research projects and executive education formats to tailor-made consulting services.

In the "Executive Education" section you can find examples of possible topic areas for bespoke educational formats as well as additional information in regard to the Executive MBA program at RWTH.

In the context of specific projects we aim at a close exchange between research, teaching and the corporate practice. You can find information regarding possible research collaborations, external dissertations, corporate lectures within our courses as well as specific initiatives (such as the TIM Innovation Roundtable and the Center for Entrepreneurship).

General consulting services, which translate the latest research results into the corporate context, complement our offering.
