ESMT and the Hertie School of Governance Announce Dual Degree Executive MBA/MPA Program

Two-year program to launch in the fall of 2016

Two Berlin-based schools, ESMT and the Hertie School of Governance, have announced plans to launch a new program that combines an Executive MBA with a Master of Public Administration.

The new EMBA/MPA dual-degree program will be the first of its kind in Europe. It's set to help participants understand the intersection between politics, business, and society.

According to Helmut Anheier, the president of the Hertie School: “Be it the viable use of resources, the integration of migrants into the labor market, or financial stability - with many challenges we face, we would make faster progress with inter-sectoral thinking in everyday management. As an important center for politics and business in the heart of Europe, Berlin is an ideal location for an international Executive MBA/MPA such as the one the Hertie School and ESMT are offering.”

The entire program will be two years long; most of the curriculum will be delivered in Berlin. However, there will be some workshops in Brussels and London, as well as international field trips to countries such as Argentina, Brazil, China, Hong Kong, or Malaysia.

To apply for the program, those interested should have a university degree and at least five years of work experience. The program will start in the fall of 2016; applications will be accepted beginning on December 4, 2015.
