The tuition fee for the programme is € 27.000, regardless of whether it is completed in one or two years. Usually, the fees are paid in two equal instalments in the one year programme, and in four equal instalments in the two-year programme. Upon request, alternative payment schemes can be arranged.
These fees only account for a small percentage of the overal annual budget of the School. The main part of the budget is provided by the Hertie-Foundation.
A limited number of scholarships (full/partial tuition waivers) are available within the EMPM programme.
EMPM candidates may also apply for scholarships and financial aid of various institutions and foundations.
Apart from scholarships, financial support is also available through student loans. As the Hertie School has been added to the master designation list of educational institutions for Canada and the United States of America, we are authorized to certify "in-school" loan deferment applications for students from the U.S. and Canada.
In 11 of the 16 German Länder legislation allows employees to attend continuing education courses (paid educational leave – Bildungsurlaub) for several working days per year with no loss in earnings.
In Germany, tuition fees are also tax-deductible as professional training expenses.
