Against the backdrop of complex global challenges, leaders worldwide have to fulfill increasingly ambitious tasks. Therefore, the focus of the different training courses offered by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) lies on the transfer of specialist knowledge and the training of analytical skills in a global perspective as well as on the enhancement of personal, communicative and social skills.
The training offered by DIE is application-, dialogue- and solution-oriented and stands out due to its modern didactic methods. The international training environment promotes intercultural learning and the creation of international and cross-sectoral networks.
Since 1965, young university graduates are prepared through the Postgraduate Training Programme for challenging tasks and responsibilities in international development cooperation. Additionally, in 2007 a training and dialogue format for young professionals from rising powers was introduced. Today the MGG Academy is the cornerstone of Managing Global Governance, a platform for mutually reinforcing activities in the fields of qualification, dialogue, knowledge production and policy advice. Besides, the DIE organises further training for senior staff and leaders, as well as individually tailored workshops and seminars.
