Certified Public Affairs Expert

Quadriga University of Applied Sciences Berlin is the pioneering institution for the professionalisation of political communication in the German-speaking world. Public affairs consultants need a variety of skills, expertise and an in-depth knowledge of the specifics of political systems, as well as a strong understanding of themselves and their team. Leadership comes from more than just within. Being able to offer leadership to different partners and confidently assess who needs what, why and how are just as key. That is why our public affairs executive education programmes teach you about more than just the most important tools for public affairs, but also the essentials of the EU’s and Germany’s political and cultural systems, and help you develop as a professional political communicator.

Certified Public Affairs Expert

Further training for actors in the political arena must be designed to meet a variety of needs: on the one hand, it must be tailored to the respective positions and perspectives of the participants in the political arena. On the other hand, public affairs for companies, associations, foundations and trade unions needs a lot of applicable knowledge about methods and instruments of interest representation + political communication, general management processes and leadership. The Certified Public Affairs Leader, as a public affairs further education, brings all this to the point in four presence phases in an application-oriented manner in order to professionalize you in your daily practice in action and on paper as a certification.
