What's New at the Hertie School
Edition 2 · Academic Year 2017/2018
October 2017

Dear Friends of the Hertie School,

I am happy to share some exciting news with you: The Hertie School has been awarded the longest accreditation period that can be awarded to a private university in Germany by the German Science Council. The Council also recommended that the Berlin senate extend the Hertie School’s right to award doctorates for another five years.

On Thursday, 26 October we are hosting the inaugural event of our lecture series on corporate governance, inspired by the Hertie School’s new Dr. Michael Endres Prize. You can still register and join us.

With great sadness, we learned of the sudden, tragic death of Sylke Tempel earlier this month. She has been a member of the Hertie School community since its inception, and we are thankful for her frequent contributions to many Hertie School events. Her passing is a deep loss to our community, and indeed to all engaged in foreign policy dialogue.

Thank you for your interest in the Hertie School. 

Helmut K. Anheier
