The Hertie School of Governance is a professional school for public policy and public management in Berlin. It is an accredited and state-recognised institution of higher education. The School prepares highly qualified students, as well as professionals and executives, for public leadership positions.
The University of Potsdam (UP) is one of Germany’s most innovative universities, with a strong reputation in the fields of modern governance and public management.
Together, the Hertie School and the UP offer executive education training for experienced professionals from all sectors who wish to increase and expand their public management competences as well as their soft and technical skills. In practice-oriented seminars, skills courses and a Workshop in Brussels, participants are introduced to key concepts and tools, and reflect upon current challenges and best practices of public management. 3 Intensive Management Modules as well as 6 Certificates are offered and provide intensive training for gaining true expertise in a selected area. An international team of renowned lecturers from academia, the public sector, and the business world ensure the highest academic quality.
Participants are professionals with an average work experience of about 12 years and an average of 39 years of age. They come from all over Europe and several other continents with diverse institutional backgrounds – from national ministries, to regional or local administrations, European institutions or international organisations, consultancies or NGOs. Lawyers, economists, and social and natural scientists gain insight into other disciplines. The intersectoral, international and interdisciplinary composition makes the courses a unique forum for professional exchange and networking.
All courses (except the Workshop in Brussels) take place in the centre of Berlin and are held in English. They are offered in a compact format, making it easy to integrate them into demanding work chedules, also for professionals from outside of Berlin or even from abroad.
