ESCP/Hertie School Certificate Series

The ESCP/Hertie School Certificate Series is a set of unique short-term executive programmes for managers working at the intersection of business, politics and civil society. Certificates consist of three to four seminars each, and they address topics and skills related to general management such as leadership, strategy and decision making.

All seminars take place at either ESCP's Berlin campus or at the Hertie School Berlin. They will cover the main concepts, principles and instruments as well as their application in different organisational contexts. Each certificate requires participants to successfully complete all seminars within two years.

Credits can be transferred to ESCP’s Executive MBA programme and Hertie School’s Executive Master of Public Administration programme.

Corporate Strategy • This course provides you with key frameworks and concepts in strategic management. It demonstrates how a firm must have a clear vision and clear objectives before formulating its strategy, taking into account its corporate culture. The course illuminates the need for strategic analysis and teaches you how to apply the appropriate tools. While strategic decisions at the corporate level, the business unit level and the functional level are important, the course also links strategy formulation to strategy implementation.
