10 Years Hertie School of Governance

At the end of 2003 the Hertie Foundation announced the establishment of the Hertie School of Governance, a professional school for Public Policy in Berlin with a uniquely European focus.

In Spring 2004 the Hertie School hosted an international symposium on The Role of the State in the 21st Century, positioning itself as a key player in Berlin's public dialogue on governance. In the same year the School hosted a first round of Executive Seminars. The Master of Public Policy Programme was launched in 2005.

Join the Hertie School Community in celebrating a decade of pursuing and shaping good governance. On this website you will find diverse aspects of the Hertie School's story so far always adding up to 10.

We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane!
