Student event

Careers in digitalisation and development

Join us as we discuss career paths in digitalisation and development with Lea Gimpel (GIZ), Toni Kaatz-Dubberke (GIZ), and Prateek Sibal (UNESCO).

The event will be moderated by Gerhard Hammerschmid (Professor of Public and Financial Management and Director of the Centre for Digital Governance). 

Digitalisation and development is an emerging field offering interesting career paths for graduates. Together with our expert speakers, we will explore career perspectives with focus on digitalisation and development by addressing questions of how digitisation is affecting and transforming development and by discussing risks and potentials. In addition, we will examine the opportunities this field holds for public policy and international affairs graduates.

This event is part of the series titled "Career perspectives in digital governance" co-hosted by the Hertie School's Career development team and the Centre for Digital Governance.

Prior registration is required. Registered attendees will receive the login details via e-mail prior to the event. Registration is now closed.
