Designing an MBA in educational leadership: the ethical business of transformative leadership
Designing a new MBA programme in educational leadership provides an exciting opportunity to reflect on research informed knowledge exchange that can have a direct impact on the way in which our programme’s students, as educational leaders, impact on the people and communities they serve.
In responding to the challenges of educational leadership in 2023, with education leaders having to be skilled business leaders as well as educationalists, this lightning talk will set out how the programme responds by weaving three key strands of leadership together; namely: organisational, ethical, and transformative & sustainable leadership.
From these strands we generate a dynamic programme that supports educational leaders in constructing well developed organisational strategies that balance the tension between business imperatives and ethical education goals. Our students will conduct professional inquiries into issues, engage with innovative consultancy, and deliver measurable impact within their own settings. The aim is to develop leadership capabilities that lead through complex and challenging environments in both business and education considering both the external and internal context of socially and economically sustainable organisations; striving to support leaders who advocate for people and communities, addressing specific local, regional and national needs.
