The LMU Center for Advanced Management Studies (LMU CAMS) was founded in 2007 in course of the LMUexcellent initiative. The center is supported by all institutes at the LMU Munich School of Management and chaired by the LMU CAMS Director Professor Dr. Martin Spann, Director of the Institute of Electronic Commerce and Digital Markets at the Munich School of Management.
The main objective of the LMU CAMS is to promote interaction between LMU faculty members and internationally renowned researchers from abroad. In particular, LMU CAMS is to support the academic training of young scientists by exposing them to new concepts, methods and research ideas.
