Lead the Change
Your Next Step in Creative Leadership
At the Berlin School, we challenge individuals and organizations to rethink their outlook in the face of global disruption and change. And although they come to us from all over the world, participants in our non-degree programs have a couple of things in common: they are driven by a need to respond to the evolving demands of their industries and their imperative is to meet the demands (many of which are emotionally-charged) of their markets, clients and teams. The sessions are headed by leading international instructors and experts in their fields who understand the challenges creative leaders face in today’s complex world. Whether you are in charge of an advertising campaign, an innovative technology, a finance department, a marketing association, a prominent industry event or company culture, the Berlin School can offer you a premium, compact educational experience.
Future of Doing
The Future of Doing is a 4-week long online open program which includes 4 live interactive sessions. It is focus on the niche needs of creative teams who deliver innovation as their primary function, and the aim is to rethink the key pillars of the employee experience as well as co-design a future workplace for these creative makers to thrive.

Can the Berlin School design programs be aligned with my company’s strategy?
Yes! Each and every one of our customized programs is set up to ensure that our content is tailored to your organization’s strategy, directly relevant to your participants’ jobs and roles, and integrated with your strategic objectives. Together we discuss and define your desired outcomes in-depth long before your program takes place. This collaborative approach gives you control over the metrics for evaluating the positive long-term impact a Berlin School design program has.
How does the Berlin School customize its programs to match my company’s objectives?
Customizing a program begins with you. The first step in our partnership is conducting a thorough needs assessment. Among other measures, this includes a number of interviews with key senior management stakeholders at your company, as well as with members of the group participating in a prospective program and other relevant individuals in your organization.
How can I schedule a free needs assessment session?

Do you also provide custom programs for associations, member organizations or professional conferences?
Yes! We frequently partner with associations and membership organizations at both national and international levels to offer best-in-class learning opportunities among targeted peer groups.

How do I register for an Executive Education course?
To register, please fill out the registration form linked to each course. After submitting your registration form, you will be contacted by a member of our team with further instructions. Once payment has been received, your slot in the course will be confirmed at least four weeks prior to its starting date.
When is the deadline for registration?
As a general rule for our open programs, the deadline for registration is one month prior to the date the course is scheduled to begin. If you are interested in a seminar where a registration deadline has already passed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if there is still space available.
Do I have to pay VAT?
Executive Education Programs offered in Germany are subject to a 19% German VAT surcharge (Mehrwertsteuer). According to EU Reverse Charge regulations, EU participants who provide us with tax identification numbers are not subject to VAT charges. Non-EU participants must pay the VAT up front, but can reclaim charges via representatives such as Tevea International. The original paid invoice is crucial to any VAT reclamation, so you will need your original paid invoice to reclaim VAT. Copies of the invoice are not accepted for VAT reimbursement. If you need assistance recouping VAT, please contact: accounts(at)berlin-school.com.
Cancellation policy: What if I register for a course and my plans change?"
If you notify the Berlin School at least 30 days before the official starting date of your scheduled seminar, you may choose to receive either full credit for a future seminar or a full refund.
Notification between 30 days prior and 14 days to the start of your scheduled seminar date: 50% of the total fee will be charged but you may choose to transfer this 50% credit for a future event in the period of the same year.

*Exception is made for illness proved by a doctor’s certificate.
The Berlin School reserves the right to cancel a course due to low enrolment up to 7 days before the course starts. Please consider this when making travel & accommodation arrangements. You will be notified by phone or email if this is the case. Subsequently, you may choose to join a different course with a 10% discount, or receive a full refund for your original program.
