Guided by good governance principles, mid-career professionals from all sectors need innovative ideas to lead people, shape decisions, and change the institutions they work for. The international and practice-oriented Executive MPA programme tackles precisely these governance and management challenges and offers a unique forum for exchange, learning, and professional development. The flexible programme can be completed full-time in one year or over a period of two years while working (it is also possible to prolong the studies and complete the programme in three or even four years).
Some of the best ideas are born from dialogue with peers. Executive MPA participants are united in the desire to think critically and originally, and in their wish to hone their behaviour and enhance their leadership performance. Coming from government, international organisations, business and NGOs from all across Europe and beyond, the highly qualified Executive MPA participants bring together a broad range of experiences from all sectors and disciplines. The programme's distinguished faculty is supported by experienced practitioners from the field and provides participants with hands-on training, analytical tools and transferable skills and enables them to develop competencies needed for senior management positions.
The Hertie School’s Executive Master programme was founded in 2008. It has a clear public administration curriculum, with a focus on aspects of management and governance. Over 200 professionals have participated in the programme since 2008.
The Executive MPA programme attracts participants from all over the world and from all sectors. Courses are taught by renowned international faculty and experienced practitioners. A candidate's contribution to the diversity of the student body is also taken into account when granting scholarship funds. [more]
