    MBA in Education Leadership

    MBA Ed. Leadership Home
    UNM is partnering 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 educational context.

    About the Partnership

    The Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellowship in Education Leadership recruits and prepares outstanding leaders for schools and districts in participating states. The goal: to address the United States' twin educational achievement gaps—the one between the nation's lowest performing and its best schools, as well as the one between the nation's best schools and their top international competitors. The Fellowship seeks both to prepare leaders who can bring all American schools up to world-class levels of performance and to develop a new gold standard for preparing education leaders.
