The Executive Master of Arts in International Educational Leadership and Change (IELC) is a part-time, modular, and online postgraduate programme. It is designed to develop leaders with the capacity to operate successfully in an international leadership environment and lead educational change, particularly in the East Asian context.
The IELC targets aspiring and practicing leaders who want to make a difference in their own schools, in the region and beyond. In other words, it is for leaders who want to ‘give something back,’ leaders with a social conscience and civic responsibility.
Our aim is to bring together people from a range of professional and educational backgrounds to create a stimulating, creative and practice-focused learning network within which meaningful change can be discussed and enacted. As such, it is ideal for leaders involved in local education settings, those in international schools, and those who follow the International Baccalaureate, Cambridge or other national or hybrid curricula.
This network will provide academic support and professional insight into cultural differences in leadership and workplace practices, and opportunities for development that last well beyond graduation. Both intellectual and pragmatic support will be provided by a range of staff holding a wealth of academic as well as ‘real-life’ leadership experience in international contexts.
Our mission is to enhance the capacity of our graduates to contribute to social and educational development in the region today and in the future.
