The Hertie School

The Hertie School is a private university in Berlin, one of Europe’s most dynamic capitals. As an ambassador of good governance, the school is characterised by interdisciplinary and practice-oriented teaching, first-class research and an extensive global network.

The Hertie School is a renowned international faculty with expertise in economics, security policy, business, law, political and social science, taking an interdisciplinary, policy-oriented approach to the school’s teaching and research agenda. The Hertie School’s Executive Education track offers a range of short courses for mid-career professionals, a flexible executive degree programme and customised seminars for institutional clients across all sectors: public administration, international organisations, non-profits, the media, the corporate sector, think tanks and academia. We have partnered a number of times with OSCE institutions, in particular with regard to educative projects such as the “Policy adviser” course that we run several times each year together with the OSCE/ODIHR in Warsaw.
