Master Public Policy at University of Erfurt

The Willy Brandt School of Public Policy at the University of Erfurt was established in 2002 as Germany’s first professional school of public policy. Since its foundation the Willy Brandt School has attracted researchers, lecturers and students from 67 countries which represent all regions of the world. The Brandt School incorporates the vision of its name patron that the world is fundamentally interconnected and interdependent, that local solutions require global understanding, and that responsible policy-making means to boldly think outside of the box.

The Brandt School’s Master of Public Policy (MPP) is a two-year interdisciplinary degree program designed for young academics and professionals who wish to pursue a career in public service, including government agencies, international organizations and the non-profit sector. The MPP program equips future decision makers with the knowledge and practical skills they will need to advance the public interest and make sound policy decisions. The medium of instruction is English and the program is fully accredited through ACQUIN.

Drawn from political science, economics, sociology, public administration and law, the MPP curriculum builds the skills and knowledge base required of a professional policy analyst. It includes courses in political and economic analysis, statistics, public management and ethics. Throughout the coursework, research and field experience, students develop their understanding of the policy process and the institutions and actors involved in that process.
