Mentoring Stories

Mentoring Tandem Dominik von Au and Moritz Kagerer

“We are challenging each other”

If TUM Alumni Dominik von Au and his mentee Moritz Kagerer were race drivers, they would most certainly be at the front of the field. The determination they both have with regard to their careers is remarkable. In their mentoring partnership this is mutually beneficial.

Alumni and challenges

How do You do this?

Four alumni tell us about extraordinary situations in their lives and how they dealt with them.

„The goal should be to turn fear into anticipation“

Consultant and Coach Franz Kapsner

In his work as a coach, TUM alumnus Franz Kapsner (Diploma in Mathematics 1977) helps others to tackle changes and master new challenges. He presents options for every period of life and helps people to identify their talents, inclinations and abilities and express them. KontakTUM asked the long-time mentor about the challenge of retirement.

AI Expert Philip Häusser

"You have to venture into the unknown to get ahead"

TUM Alumni Philip Häusser had neither planned to do a doctorate nor to become an entrepreneur. But when the opportunity presented itself, he didn't hesitate. At TUM, he was in good company when it came to breaking new ground.

Mathematician Rebecca Bürkle

“This is where I learned to think big”

Birgit Spanner-Ulmer will die Welt Stück für Stück „einfacher“ machen. Seit ihrer Promotion an der TUM widmet sie sich der Optimierung von Produkten und Prozessen – in der Industrie, der Wissenschaft und seit 2012 beim öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunk.

Mentor Karl Fordemann

“This is meaningful living at its best!”

After more than twenty years as its Managing Director, TUM Alumni Karl Fordemann decided to leave the family brewery. Today, he is managing an academy for self-development. A decision that has not been easy for him. What he has learned from this experience, he is now passing on to his mentees.

Mentor Viktoria Leonhard

"I don't enjoy boring, routine tasks"

TUM Alumna Viktoria Leonhard never misses out on opportunities for further education and is always on the lookout for new projects. She has twice volunteered her experience as a TUM Mentor. Most recently, she started the Alumni Group Stuttgart. And she does all this alongside her management position at Allianz.
