As an education manager, you have several roles to play. You lead a school, department or team. You think about the future by anticipating opportunities and threats in the environment. You shape the strategy by translating it into concrete decisions and activities. You also strive for effective and responsible management.

Set-up part-time Executive Master of Management in Education (MME)

The Executive Master of Management in Education consists of three substantive themes and we conclude with a master thesis. Depending on your level of education, you may be required to follow the premaster first. Within each theme, we alternate professional knowledge with coaching and workshops. The MME master's program is inspired by Mark Moore's 'Public Value' model.

Theme 1: Mission and strategy
What public value do you want to realize? Which strategies are most suitable for this? What does the interaction with your environment look like?

  • Module 1: Strategic Public management
  • Module 2: Research: problem analysis
  • Module 3: Strategy and environment

Theme 2: Organization
How can you properly execute the mission and strategy? What organizational capacity do you need for this? How can you collaborate better, internally and externally?

  • Module 4: Organizations and networks
  • Module 5: HRM and professionals
  • Module 6: Co-creation with stakeholders

Theme 3: Support
How do you gain support for the ambitions of your organization? How can governance, leadership, (financial) accountability and innovation contribute to this?

  • Module 7: Governance and accountability
  • Module 8: Leadership
  • Module 9: Innovation (study trip)

You conclude the part-time master MME with a master’s thesis on a subject from your own professional practice

Business Research Methods

Business Research Methods (BRM) is part of your Master's degree. This module will help you make better decisions in situations where a solution to a problem is not immediately obvious because you are missing some of the information. 

For students doing an entire Master's program at TIAS, both BRM modules are mandatory. We recommend doing BRM I at the start of your Master's and BRM II at the end, just before graduation. Talk to your Program Adviser about the best time to schedule BRM I into your personal learning path.
