A genuine "universitas" with a strong research profile

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich is one of the leading research universities in Europe with over 500 years of tradition. It has been selected as a "university of excellence" within the Excellence Initiative, a competition launched by the German government to promote top-level university research.

LMU Munich stands for groundbreaking research and challenging teaching. As a genuine "universitas", it offers a wide and well-differentiated spectrum that covers all areas of knowledge, whether humanities and cultural sciences, law, economics and sociology, or medicine and the sciences. With degree programs available in 150 subjects in numerous combinations, the array of courses LMU Munich has to offer is extremely wide. Some 49,000 students, 14 percent of whom come to us from abroad, are currently taking advantage of these opportunities.

Know-how and creative intelligence of some 700 professors and 3,600 academic staff members form the foundation of our outstanding research balance as recognized by many national and international university rankings.
