Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs of Study

The Certificate in International Education Administration is a dynamic, intensive 15 credit learning experience (often needed to move up a salary scale) for those who already hold a Masters degree in Education. The five courses can be completed within the current structure of the full online M.Ed. in  International Education Administration program or within the courses offered in the blended programs in Madrid, Leysin and Prague.

Students will cultivate leadership skills through study, reflection and experimentation in negotiation, communication and mediation, personnel and financial management and innovative leadership practices. Drawn from international, private, and public school standards and based upon strong theoretical foundations, International Education Administration courses reflect the practical, hands-on learning necessary for effective leadership in K-12 schools. The program is designed to provide the skills and tools that experts, researchers, and practitioners believe leaders need in our changing, complex global environment.
