In addition to its 18 faculties, it has a number of research centers that are involved in numerous cross-faculty and transdisciplinary projects to supplement its academic programs. MISU provides two types of courses: subject-specific summer academies and German Language Classes. Summer academies at MISU are subject-specific courses that help students improve their knowledge of research areas in academic fields of interest. The number of students enrolled in each course is limited to ensure intensive supervision and student interaction in class. MISU summer academies cover the following academic disciplines: Economics, Business and Communication, Social Sciences, Law, Medicine, and Natural Sciences. German language courses are designed to teach the German language in its academic, social, and cultural contexts, allowing students to advance their language skills while also expanding their knowledge of Germany. Strategic cooperation with universities, networks, and scientific organizations enriches LMU research, improves study and teaching quality, and fosters innovation. Globally, 20 extensive university collaborations and 200 exchange partnerships enable international experience and active scientific exchange in a wide range of disciplines, including joint study programs. The LMU is a member of a number of prestigious international research organizations, including LERU, EUA, and Europaeum.
