School Leader Preparation at UIndy
UIndy 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. Prospective fellows will be nominated by their school districts or charter authorizers to be considered for this highly selective 13-month fellowship. The leadership program is based on a “grow your own” model, in which districts or schools become working partners with the University to address their specific needs. This program will appeal to candidates who strive to become a principal, superintendent, or other central office administrator.
The program is designed on an interdisciplinary basis wherein Fellows will engage with faculty with academic and real-world experience, including education faculty, business faculty, school leaders, and business leaders. Each Fellow will have an opportunity to become certified as a Six Sigma green belt. More information
Schools/Districts Working with UIndy
In order to provide real-world, fieldwork experiences, UIndy is partnering with school districts and charter schools throughout Indiana.

In order to ensure that Fellows are leading districts and schools to world-class status, international assessments will be employed to validate student and graduate achievement.

Fellows will receive a full tuition scholarship, which includes a fully paid international travel experience with a focus on researching global business and educational systems.
