Strengthen your skills and face the challenges in education

The education sector is evolving fast, with new trends popping up all the time. Digitization is playing an increasingly important role, which means we can expect many significant developments still to come. We see this happening in primary, secondary, vocational and higher professional education. As an education manager, you often have multiple roles, including managing and leading others. You think about the future by seizing opportunities and responding to threats, and by developing and translating the organization's strategy into specific decisions and actions. This Master's program will help you grow as a professional in the field of policy, management, organization and leadership in education.

A degree that lets you have an impact on business and society? I’ll be happy to help you find the program or course of study that best suits your ambitions, learning goals and career path.
