Why you should study Pedagogy, Educational Counselling and Leadership

There are countless reasons to study for a Master's degree at IU. Perhaps the most important is the fact that more and more professions require a Master's degree. After all, it is a synonym for your proven expertise in a field that you have personally defined. This is especially true if you want to do a doctorate and pursue an academic career. Another advantage of the Master's programme is that you can already get a taste of practical experience and broaden your horizons with valuable experience. This means that you will have a lot more arguments in your favour when it comes to vacancies than candidates who "only" have a Bachelor's degree. But you also benefit from attractive career prospects. You will not only be able to start your career at a significantly higher salary level. As a Master's graduate you will also take on responsible tasks in a managerial position much sooner. 


Your IU studies in Pedagogy, Educational Counselling and Leadership

Your Master's programme in Educational Counselling and Leadership at the IU International University of Applied Sciences is consistently geared towards educational professionalism in a digitalised world. Thus, you can not only deepen your existing knowledge in the competence fields of leadership, education and counselling. You will also learn to reflect on your own profession and your leadership actions. Furthermore, the topics of Leadership, Change Management and Organisational Development play just as important a role as the teaching of new competences in the field of Research Methodology and Quality Management in Education. Supplemented by the development of important key competencies, you will be optimally prepared for your future work. And you will get to know pedagogical practice more closely in various projects. 


A look into the future: what you'll do after graduation

Your areas of application in Pedagogy are almost limitless: as a graduate with a Master's degree in Pedagogy, Educational Counselling and Leadership, you are an absolute multi-talent in the field of Education and can work as a sought-after manager in Education, Further Education and Training. But qualified experts like you are also in demand in Healthcare and Nursing Institutions as well as in Educational and Counselling Institutions. With your broad-based specialist knowledge including digital background, you can, for example, take on the planning of further education programmes, the supervision of existing offers and the conceptual development of new offers as a pedagogical employee. Or, as an eLearning and Digital Learning Content Manager, you can take care of the development and advancement of digital learning formats. Of course, you can also take over the pedagogical management and be responsible for steering all pedagogical processes and concepts as well as for Personnel and Participation Management.
