    Goals / Remit

    The Hertie School is a private non-profit university based in Berlin, recognised by the German state and accredited by the German Science Council. The school’s mission is to prepare students for leadership positions in government, business and civil society institutions; to produce knowledge for good governance and policymaking; and to encourage active engagement for the common good. The international faculty of currently 37 professors bring together their expertise in economics, law, political science, public management and sociology.
    We offer four master’s programmes (Master of Public Policy, Master of International Affairs, Master of Data Science for Public Policy and Executive Master of Public Administration), executive education, a doctoral programme in Governance as well three additional PhD programmes in cooperation with top universities and research institutes in Berlin.
    The school was founded in 2003 by the Hertie Foundation, which remains its major funder.

    Main EU files targeted

    The Jacques Delors Centre of the Hertie School works on a broad number of EU policies including foreign and security policy; economic policy; financial market policy; migration policy; climate and environmental policy; and EU institutional questions.
