Hertie School adds ten new exchange programmes worldwide

New exchanges in Europe, North America, Central America and Australia for MPP, MIA students.

Berlin, 10 July 2018 – The Hertie School of Governance in Berlin has added ten new exchange programmes with top-ranked universities for Master of Public Policy (MPP) and Master of International Affairs (MIA) students.

The new exchange partners for the MPP programme are the Crawford School for Public Policy, Australian National University, Canberra; Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali (Luiss), Rome; School of Public Affairs, Sciences Po, Paris; Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económica (CIDE), Mexico City. These add to the existing fifteen, semester-long academic exchange opportunities for MPP students. Furthermore, the Hertie School also offers six dual degree programmes for MPP students in five different countries including Italy, Japan, the UK, the United States and France.

The new exchange partners for the MIA programme are the Paris School of International Affairs, Sciences Po, Paris; Elliot School of International Affairs, George Washington University, Washington, DC; School of Advanced International Affairs (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University (Bologna or Washington, DC); Crawford School for Public Policy, Australian National University, Canberra; Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali (Luiss), Rome; Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económica (CIDE), Mexico City. The MIA programme already offers eight exchange opportunities and two dual degrees: one with the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University and one with the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs of Syracuse University. Additional opportunities for MIA students are forthcoming.

Hertie School President Helmut K. Anheier says: “Our study abroad and dual degree opportunities allow Hertie School students to expand their horizons and build personal networks at institutions throughout the world. It also means that students from our partner schools study with us here in Berlin and add to the vibrant, international fabric of our school. The breadth and quality of our partner institutions worldwide is a crucial component of the Hertie School, and we are constantly seeking to grow, whether by adding more opportunities with existing partners or finding new opportunities with institutions around the world.”

Nearly one-third of each Hertie School cohort participates in an exchange programme with partner institutions. The Hertie School also hosts a roughly similar number of exchange students on its campus in Berlin each year.
