Alumni describe their Hertie School experience in one word

Kicking off alumni November, eight MPP, MIA and Executive Master's graduates sum up their studies in Berlin.

At the 2022 Alumni Reunion / Hertie Summit in June, we sat down with eight Hertie School alumni from the Master of Public Policy, Master of International Affairs, Executive Master of Public Management and Executive Master of Public Administration programmes to chat about what it was like studying in Berlin, as well as their endeavours since graduation. Watch the video above for a lightning round of alumni perspectives on the Hertie School experience!
