The working language is English. Until November 2009, the school was named Erfurt School of Public Policy (ESPP) The Brandt School was designed according to the Anglo-American model, where education, teaching and research are organised jointly. In the area of public policy, the school offers advanced training at the Master’s level, by combining knowledge and methods from different branches of the social sciences (economics, political science, public administration and management science, and sociology). With the help of references to professional praxis and relevant social problems, the Brandt School wants to help soften the borders of the individual sciences. As a result, students should be enabled to use interdisciplinary theory and methods to develop and work on problems from different angles and to develop individual skills relevant to their future careers. The Brandt School is particularly characterized by the internationality of its student body, its students are from more than dozens of countries. Willy Brandt was chosen as a name-giver for various reasons that connect to the city of Erfurt, his style of making politics and the focus of his politics.In 1970, Brandt visited Erfurt for the first German-German summit meeting and was enthusiastically cheered on by the local crowd. His contributions to the east-west and north-south dialogues have helped improve mutual understanding, and his modern, reform-oriented style serves as a role model for the students
