Lead the way to a brighter future with a master's in educational leadership.

The early days of a student’s education can be extremely formative, and making sure they get off to the right start is critical for success. A lot of planning goes into making sure students receive the right education, from preparing curriculums to managing faculty, and any successful school requires the right leadership to help them prepare students for a bright future.

This Master of Science in Educational Effectiveness program focuses on leadership in P-12 education environments, teaching you the wide variety of skills you need to ensure your faculty is able to reach their students and help them learn and grow. You’ll learn how to locate research and information on best practices, use data-driven models to implement the most effective curriculum possible, and apply continuous improvement processes to all aspects of the classroom.

With the broad understanding you’ll gain of education management, you’ll be prepared to step into a leadership role at many different types of schools, ranging from preschools to high schools, and apply your knowledge to help your students receive the highest quality education. This is a building administrator program approved by the state of Michigan and as a graduate, you’ll be prepared to start a career as a building principal.

I chose Baker for the curriculum. They look at what you’re going to need and a lot of MBAs are general. The curriculum at Baker I felt that a lot of the things that I was doing in school I could directly translate into what I was doing in the hospital.
