Professional: integrated part of the degree for careers in all fields

MPP graduates are versatile generalists with the capacity to work and create positive change in many policy fields. Whether you aim to work on economic development or climate change, education or healthcare, the digitalisation of government or international cooperation, the MPP will equip you with a rich skills set to put you on your dream career path. Graduates go on to lead successful careers in the public and private sectors, as well as international and civil society organisations, serving -among other roles- as policy analysts, government officials, researchers, advisors to elected officials, and consultants to ministries, government agencies, non-profit organisations and private firms.

At the Hertie School, we understand that career planning is a lifelong matter. During your studies, you will begin building a professional network with the support of our Career Development team and put what you learn in the classroom to the test.

Our growing alumni network offers students and graduates access to an international community of successful policy professionals in leading organisations in many countries. Learn from their experience, get to know them and their career paths.
