Founded in 1947 by the French occupational authorities as a grande école, today it is operated under the joint responsibility of both the Federal Republic and all 16 German states . It runs four Master’s programs, grants doctoral degrees and habilitations, offers a postgraduate certificate program, and administers programs of executive education. The school is a major training ground for German and international senior government officials. Noted alumni and faculty include former President of Germany Roman Herzog, former President of the Bundesbank Helmut Schlesinger, former Attorney General of Germany Alexander von Stahl, and CEO of BASF Jürgen Strube.
The school was founded in 1947 as École Supérieure d’Administration by the French occupational authorities in order to democratize the German senior civil service. Created as a sister institution to École Nationale d’Administration, it was the first and only German school to employ the French grande école model. In 1950 it was formally established as a German institution of public law with legal capacity and entrusted with “fostering the administrative sciences in education and research”. In 1961 and 1970 respectively, it was bestowed with the right to grant habilitations and doctorates, thereby receiving full university status. Since its inception, the school has had a reputation as an “elite training center”. The school is the only German university run jointly by the Federal Republic and all 16 German states .
