Shaping change

Willy Brandt School of Public Policy

A business mindset and application-oriented analytical methods are in demand not only in the private sector. They are also used by decision makers in not-for-profit organizations, who thus promote sociopolitical change. The Haniel Foundation has therefore been lending its support to the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy since the school was founded.
