Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

As a school of governance, (corporate) responsibility and sustainability lie at the core of what the Hertie School stands for. They are part of the School’s mission ( and are thus woven into its institutional fabric. For example, students of the Master of Public Policy are taught team building and leadership skills as part of their curriculum. The same applies to the Executive Master of Public Administration, where students can, for example, pursue classes in stakeholder communications as well as leadership and management, to name but two. Lastly, the Hertie School regularly offers customised training programmes from professionals from all over the world, on topics such as good governance, capacity building, etc.

The School plans on continuing along this path and to continue increasing its impact both through growing student numbers, and through the concomitant growth in Hertie alumni pursuing careers in various sectors.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Most of the work the School carries out is for and/or with institutions from the public sector/international organisations. This includes

- a research project on corruption (ANTICORRP) funded by the European Commission,
- a research project on fiscal transparency, risk assessment and assessment of the impact of good governance policies (Digiwhist: the Digital Whistleblower),
- a programme which seeks to comparatively and quantitatively assess the impact of New Public Management-style reforms in European countries (COCOPS) as well as
- the School’s annual flagship publication, the Governance Report, which uses policy challenges as a lens through which to explore how different state and non-state actors have adjusted and could adjust to the types of challenges brought about by the new policy-making realities.

Further information on the School’s research projects can be found at:

The School will continue to pursue these and other similar research projects in the future.
