Hertie School of Governance
The Hertie School of Governance is an international teaching and research centre of excellence that prepares students for leadership positions in government, business, and civil society. An internationally-recruited faculty, interdisciplinary in outlook, research, and teaching, offers analytically-challenging and practice-oriented courses on governance, policy analysis, management, and leadership and helps students grow intellectually in a professional, research-intensive environment, characterised by public debate and engagement. Located in the centre of Berlin, the School’s support and placement services assist students in curricula planning, in finding scholarships and securing internships, and in identifying opportunities upon and after graduation.
The Master of Public Policy (MPP) programme offers teaching on corporate relations & government affairs in the public, civil society, and private sectors. The programme is intended for students pursuing a future career dealing professionally with problems of modern governance, international relations, advanced economics and politics. Upon completion of the two-year programme, students receive the Master of Public Policy (MPP). Prospective students have typically studied economics, law, or political science, but candidates from every field of study apply for admission.
The Executive Master of Public Management (EMPM) programme is aimed at experienced professionals for whom cooperation between government, business, and civil society is an important part of their work. Participants in the EMPM programme choose an individual area of concentration and can either study full-time over a period of one year or complete the programme over a period of two years if they wish to study part-time while working. Prospective students must have at least two years' professional work experience, as well as an educational background in economics, law, or social sciences.
The Hertie School of Governance also offers a PhD study programme as part of the Berlin Graduate School for Transnational Studies (BTS), a joint endeavour of the Freie Universität Berlin (FUB), the Hertie School of Governance (HSoG), and the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB).See more
