Location in Bayreuth

University and cultural city: in Bayreuth, Upper Franconia, everything started with Oberender & Partner in 2000. From our offices in a stylish old villa, we have a direct view of the Wahnfried House. The history of Richard Wagner is thus not only present, but gives us a very special charm in our approximately 670 square meters. From the foosball table in the vaulted cellar, to our cozy garden terrace, to the office, conference and training rooms: in this special and inspiring atmosphere, sophisticated concepts and creative solutions are created for our clients. The Oberender Research Institute team works closely with the university structures. This is how we become a pacesetter for you!

Location in Munich

Servus from Munich. In the Bavarian capital, modern office charm meets a warm team. Between Hirschgarten and Westpark, we have been at home in the west of Munich since 2011. In our versatile rooms there is enough space for interdisciplinary exchange and concentrated work. The central meeting point is our open and modern kitchen, where the team likes to meet for brainstorming sessions, coordination or just for a nice chat. Please feel free to visit us for an espresso!

Values of our collaboration

As a pace-setter, we set the decisive impulses to move healthcare organizations forward. The following four guiding principles play a decisive role in our teamwork and in our dealings with our customers and partners.


Quality through teamwork

Our work is characterized by the demand for the highest quality. To achieve this, we work together as a team, support each other and share our knowledge. At the same time, we encourage and challenge every single team member so that each and every individual can go above and beyond.


Clarity through communication

We practice open, proactive communication and have the courage to express our opinions honestly and constructively. Fairness, friendliness and appreciation in communication and interaction are particularly important to us. We promote the development of each individual through regular feedback.


Progress through diversity

We stand for openness and tolerance. We respect each other and value the work of every colleague across all hierarchies. New ideas are pursued sustainably at our company. We accept the weakness of the individual and use the strengths to achieve our common corporate goals.


Orientation through leadership

Together, we pursue the strategic goals of our company, assume leadership responsibility and set an example. A transparent corporate culture makes us a reliable partner – both internally and externally.

Join the Alumni Network.

Even after our time at Oberender AG, we are keen to stay in touch with our alumni. Our alumni network now comprises over 100 former colleagues and is organized within a LinkedIn group. In addition, we keep all interested parties up to date via our LinkedIn page.

The aim is to remain in contact, to exchange ideas regularly and to build up a widespread network. The one or other personal meeting is of course also part of it for an interesting exchange of experiences.
