What's New at the Hertie School
Edition 8 · Academic Year 2017/2018
July 2018

Dear friends of the Hertie School,

On 8 June, MPP, MIA and PhD graduates, along with nearly 1,000 guests, were present for the commencement ceremony, which included an address by Carl Bildt, former Swedish Prime Minister.

Claus Offe, Professor Emeritus of Political Sociology, donated his personal library to the Hertie School. We greatly appreciate this very generous gesture.

Great news for MPP and MIA students: We have established ten new exchange programmes with top-ranked universities around the world. Our study abroad and dual degree opportunities allow Hertie School students to expand their horizons and build personal networks at institutions throughout the world.

We encourage you to explore the latest edition of this newsletter to learn more about these updates and more.
