STRENGTHEN YOUR LEADERSHIP QUALITIES. STUDY LEADERSHIP IN EDUCATION.

Professional and managerial staff in education are often characterised by a wide range of competences. But what about leadership skills? Okay, many of them go through the process of "learning by doing" - and thus qualify for a managerial position. However, it is better to strengthen your leadership skills from the ground up with your master's degree in Leadership in Education. So that you are later equipped for responsibilities in the educational context.

With your master's degree in Leadership in Education, you will have the necessary action and practice-oriented knowledge to take on leadership tasks in educational institutions. The focus is on cultural and communicative aspects as well as on the quality management of leadership. You will learn how to communicate with different target groups and hierarchical levels - and develop your soft skills. After your studies, you will be able to take on responsible processes and tasks in educational leadership contexts and to shape them with scientifically sound methods. This also applies to social megatrends and their development in the field of education. During your studies, you can specialise in topics such as organisational development, digital structures in educational institutions and counselling centres, diversity-sensitive leadership and much more.

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
