Master Education in Administration and Supervision with an emphasis on Organizational Leadership

You want to lead an organization, and all the leadership programs you’ve looked at lead back to education. What can you do? Try this new Organizational Leadership M.Ed. on for size. We look at universal leadership principles which emanated in the field of education, but then specialize your studies with courses in business, adult and higher education, counseling, special education, or other fields from health professions, arts and sciences, or business to give you just what you need to excel as a leader in your organization. It’s time to step out, earn your Master’s, and be the best leader you can be. (This program does not lead to Texas administrative certification.)
