COVID-19 caution and care

ESMT Berlin resumes in-class teaching for executive education programs as Germany reopens its borders for students and executives from all over the world. Health safety on campus remains our top priority as we open our doors again with classrooms modified to ensure social distancing.

ESMT is carefully monitoring current developments, safety advice, and alerts regarding the outbreak of novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to be able to respond swiftly if the need arises. We are following the recommendations and instructions of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Robert Koch Institut (RKI) in Germany. We are regularly checking updates from both institutions to inform our community if the situation within Germany or Berlin changes. The RKI continues to assess the risk to the health of the population in Germany as high.
