    "Your teachers are selected based on three principles: academic quality (rigor), practical experiences (relevance) and teaching skills (responding). All three are important in a academic program. Our faculty is able to judge the quality of scientific research from their academic background as a professor and/or doctorate. The practical experience of our faculty makes them able to select study materials with practical relevance and teaching skills are necessary to the mutual interaction and to let reflection take place so all participants are individually challenged."

      Anko Hoepen, board member of Alpha Scholengroep

      "Mostly the program gave me a different perspective: less acting, more contemplative. And asking questions, especially a lot of questions asking: ‘Never stop asking!’
      The Executive Master of Management in Education changed my thoughts and actions in daily practice as a director. Every time you are challenged to step out your comfort zone, by practical cases, inspiring lectures and the interaction with teachers and fellow students. They challenge you to look at the world from a different (academic) perspective.
      To work closely with inspiring teachers and motivated participants from different (education) sectors makes this study an unforgettable experience."

    • Truus Vaes
      Chairman of the Board of Directors Stichting IRIS CVO Groep

      "MME gave me the pleasure to study. There are a lot of articles to read, not the mandatory ones. It's nice to notice that studying is fun again."

    • Albert Zeggelaar
      Director of Education ROC Amsterdam

      "Leadership development and working on strategic management issues at the same time helps participants of the MME Program to understand the more and more complex educational context. By interaction with colleagues and teachers concepts are explored and worked out. And after that you can test them in your own practice. The balance between theory and practice and the flexibility of the program makes this very usefull to your own organization. An value of the program is the diversity of fellow students and the support of the top professors."
