Mobilizing the best local talents for the public sector

PPE pillars are designed to provide young professionals with corporate and leadership skills that will prepare them to be effective leaders in the government.

Corporate skills: our strategy experts train students on skills needed in the business world such as critical thinking, problem-solving or effective communication. Students also receive training on using key work tools such as Excel and PowerPoint. They are exposed to the corporate environment through internships in the private sector.

Leadership: we challenge our students to be proactive, take initiative, effectively manage projects, and work in teams. They benefit from individual coaching sessions to develop self-awareness on their leadership style and build confidence.

Openness to the world: students work with our international students from over 50 countries on joint projects. Students get to work on actual projects provided by DWDG’s corporate clients thereby providing students with knowledge on key themes such as digitalization, climate change, infrastructures or sustainable mobility.

Government functions: students work on topics fitting the Government’s development plans.They are trained on key administrative processes (e.g., budget processes and procurement) and do 2-3 months internships in Government departments and ministries.
