The principal activities of the Association center around talks and discussions on topics which are both of relevance to practitioners in business and industry and which are also in the focus of the School's teaching and research activities. These topics are presented at loose intervals as "Aachener Wirtschaftsgespräche" - Aachen Talks on Economics.

Together with the IHK Aachen (Aachen Chamber of Commerce and Industry), the Association is running a series of talks entitled "Top-Manager stehen Rede und Antwort", where top managers give talks and answer any questions addressed to them. The Association also supports projects, seminars, and publications that build a bridge between the University and the public.
