International Affairs at the Hertie School

The Hertie School of Governance is expanding its focus on international affairs in the Academic Year 2015/2016 with new study programmes and events:

The two-year Master of International Affairs (MIA) programme focuses on international relations and prepares candidates for positions requiring a profound understanding of today’s governance challenges in a global multilevel system.

A range of Executive Formats focused on Development Policies, Sustainable Development and the Security-Development Nexus have been added to the Executive Seminars, Skills Training and Workshops calendar for 2015/2016. Participants interested in these fields can also combine four executive seminars or courses to complete the new Executive Certificate on the Management of International Cooperation and Development. Convenors include  Professor Wolfgang Ischinger and the World Bank’s Executive Director Ursula Müller.

Upcoming events in our Innovations in International Affairs Series include the presentation of a new report on Leadership in International Organisations with a keynote by Javier Solana. For more information click here.
