“The Willy Brandt School of Public Policy opened its doors to students from all over the world in 2002. Since then, we have been committed to training a group of talented students for management and leadership positions in the public and non-profit sector. Our goal is to prepare students for the demands and challenges of today’s complex political world.” (Prof. Heike Grimm, Director)

Welcome to the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy, Germany’s oldest public policy school situated within its newest public university. As part of the Faculty of Legal, Social and Economic Sciences, it has since operated as an interdisciplinary, practice-oriented and international institute of higher education that has been preparing students for the demands and challenges of today’s complex political world. It is neither limited to mature democracies, nor to elite decision-making, but encompasses all types of policy environments, from state administration to non-state governance, from conflict and transition to development and conservation. In this, it purposely seeks to go beyond the provision of technocratic expertise and instead aspires to endow its students with the analytical toolkit needed to understand and interact with the functional logics behind political, social, and economic processes in a diversity of operational theatres.

Along these lines, the Brandt School has been educating future leaders in government, civil society, and private enterprise. Thanks to its partners, and in particular the Haniel Foundation, the Brandt School has been able to make the most of its unique location in Thuringia’s capital Erfurt, in the very center of the unified Germany, imbued with deep historical significance from the Reformation to the Thirty Years’ War, from Weimar to the Wall, with close infrastructural and intellectual ties to other important centers, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dresden, Prague, to name but a few. It is a setting that contains the reflective space required for policy-makers of the future to thrive.

It is the place to be!
