The Hertie School is an international teaching and research centre of excellence located in vibrant and cosmopolitan Berlin.
Our motto is Understand today. Shape tomorrow. We attract a highly talented student body from diverse national and disciplinary backgrounds—united by a desire to make a difference and to bring about a better future. We offer a study environment characterised by close interaction with faculty, lively public debates and engagement with current policy developments. As a member of the Global Public Policy Network (GPPN), the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) and CIVICA - The European University of Social Sciences, the Hertie School gives students access to an exciting global network that includes the London School of Economics and Political Science, Sciences Po in Paris, Columbia University in New York and many other excellent public policy schools worldwide.
An ambassador of good governance and public stewardship, the Hertie School is a hub for top scholars, experts and representatives from the spheres of politics, business and civil society, who contribute to events at the school. Our students actively take part in these debates and regularly spearhead their own initiatives to foster the public good.
