"Studies at the Hertie School are special because students, faculty and guests you meet here are both smart, engaged and solution-oriented. They enjoy intellectual puzzles, but above all they are looking for better ways to solve pressing problems of our societies. At the Hertie School you are at the cutting edge of the governance debate - grounded in theory, but oriented towards practice." - Jan Jakub Chromiec | MPP 2012
