LMU forms an integral part of the exceptionally broad-based network of research institutions, universities, foundations, and corporations in Munich. As a major center for technology, cultural institutions, and the media, Munich provides an ideal infrastructure for study and research.

The vast resources of the city include the Technische Universität München and renowned research facilities such as the Max Planck Society, global enterprises and promising start-ups, prestigious libraries and museums as well as leading editorial houses and newspapers.

The greater Munich area is a hub of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. The university thus works closely with leading German businesses and liaises with many key manufacturers, such as Audi, and numerous banks and insurance companies, such as Munich Re.
