Bringing Politics and Technology together

Overcoming new challenges

As technological progress continues apace, policy-makers and society are faced with increasingly complex challenges. Expertise in a single discipline is no longer sufficient to develop broad-based solutions.

With its new structures, the Munich School of Politics and Public Policy  in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) provides the ideal setting to develop and fine-tune your political skills and to shape society.

Our location: Brienner Forum

The Munich School of Politics and Public Policy is located in the Brienner Forum building. These modern premises located in the city center and close to the Technical University of Munich will provide a professional study environment.

  • Processes of innovation and transformation both in Europe and abroad,
  • Consequences of growing digitalization for politics and society, and
  • Political governance and evaluation systems for technologies and their communication.
