Strategic Goals


Through research-led and innovative teaching, we provide our students with the best tools to position themselves in the national and international labour market and to work on solving social challenges in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.


We bundle our applied research into future-oriented research focuses, develop innovative solutions for the benefit of the economy and society and thus contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Our researchers are visible in the national and international scientific community with their research results and are recognised and sought after as experts in their respective fields.


The IMC team lives the mission statement with its vision, mission, values and strategic guidelines. Our successes and innovations are actively communicated to specific target groups.

Target structure

A vision for the entire IMC team

Our new vision is reflected in our overall mission statement and strategic and operational goals, and extends to the individual goals agreed in performance reviews.

IMC facts and figures

Since our university was founded in 1994, we have undergone rapid development. The range of study programmes has become larger and broader, new study locations in Europe and Asia have been added and we have established ourselves as a respected research partner.

At the same time, we were able to keep both the recommendation rate and the employment rate of our graduates high - just one of the many proofs of the high quality in teaching and research.
