The Hertie School congratulates the winners of the Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) poster competition. One day ahead of their graduation from the Executive MPA programme, students participated in an exhibition of posters featuring their thesis projects. Christine Reh, Dean of Graduate Programmes, opened the poster exhibition and congratulated the winners.
The winners of this year’s EMPA thesis poster exhibition are:
1st place - Torben Frank: Agile Agencies? Is it realistic and recommendable for public sector organisations to become agile?
2nd place - Susanne Kuehn: Strategic planning in the context of wicked problems: How development organisations can improve the way they operate
3rd place - Adrian Sonder: Labour market integration of refugees
Each year, all EMPA graduating students present their final thesis projects in a poster exhibition held just before graduation. The winners are selected by a committee. The 2018 winners were selected by Andrea Römmele (Hertie School), Anne von Fallois (Kienbaum Consultants International) and Julia Stamm (EMPA Alumna; Founder and Director of Science Leads).
