Combining the best practices from business and education
UIndy has partnered with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation on a unique and innovative master’s degree: an MBA in Education Leadership. This interdisciplinary program between the School of Business and the School of Education combines the best practices in business and education leadership within an education context. The purpose of the program is to improve student achievement domestically and also to become competitive internationally.
Prospective fellows will be nominated by their school districts, principals, or charter authorizers to be considered for this highly selective 13-month fellowship. Most coursework happens in intensive summer sessions designed to make the most of the time when fellows are not in the classroom. During the school year, fellows will continue working in their school and also complete MBA projects related to the summer courses. This program will appeal to candidates who strive to become a principal, superintendent, or other central office administrator.
Important dates for the next cohort beginning May 2017
The nomination period begins on Aug. 15, 2016 and closes Dec. 2, 2016.
The application deadline is Friday, Feb. 3, 2017.
