Course Description

Embarking on this MBA is a clear signal to your employers that you’re strongly motivated to succeed. Tailor your studies to focus closely on your current role and boost your educational leadership and management skills to an advanced level.
Studied by distance learning, our MBA in Educational Leadership and Management responds to the growing demand for new and innovative service methods. It’ll hone and develop your existing management and leadership skills, giving you the opportunity to reflect on contemporary practices and theories and enabling you to push forward in a leadership or management role in your workplace for the benefit of both pupils and staff.
Modules are relevant whether you’re working in the UK or overseas, employed in a leadership or management role or simply taking on parts of the job in your teaching position. The distance learning elements are interactive, where you’ll participate in online discussion. You’ll also use text, audio and video as well as e-books and e-journals and wider research online. You’ll be able to discuss key topics with fellow students and tutors.

Course Content

This module will enable students to engage in a process of critical evaluation and analysis to focus upon systems for managing information, relationships including staff and stakeholders, communication and reporting. Ensuring knowledge is managed effectively in order to provide comprehensive information that will facilitate efficient leadership and management in relation to staff, stakeholders, finance, facilities and measures for dealing with wider policy issues. This module encourages students to focus on internal and external systems in order to engage in a meaning review of their own organisation whilst drilling down to evaluate procedural systems and the effectiveness of information management. The module will concentrate on programme rather than project management and students will not only review and evaluate their own systems and processes, but also engage in wider research by comparing and contrasting management systems across other organisations; either from education, associated disciplines such as health or social care or from industry.
The Major Project is central to the Masters award and enables you to demonstrate your ability to synthesise learning from previous modules. You will use this learning as the basis for planning, conducting and writing up a research or work-based project. This is the opportunity for you to demonstrate the ability to raise significant and meaningful questions in relation to your chosen topic and a critical understanding of research methods and their relationship to knowledge. You will also be in a position to develop solutions to ethical dilemmas likely to arise in your research or professional practice and to expand existing knowledge to contribute to the development of best practice.
