MEd in Administration & Supervision for School Leaders

Administrators in schools and community organizations must be ready for the complex issues and situations that come with leading in cities. 

Being unprepared is scary, especially when you are feeling all alone. In our fast paced society, it’s no longer possible to rely on well-meaning bosses, pressed with time themselves for the kind of mentoring and support you need and deserve. School leaders have few options for individualized, position specific training, but our program conveniently gives you the administrative coaching you need to effectively lead your school or not for profit organization. 

Designed by world class, Chicagoland administrators, Loyola’s unique M.Ed. in Administration & Supervision for School Leaders program provides individualized support from the first day of classes, giving you the real world experiences you need to hit the ground running.
