      School Administration

      The Master’s degree in

      Educational systems have undergone continuous reforms that have made teaching and management complex tasks on today's education scene. As a result, school managers have been required to deal not only with administrative tasks and human resources management, but also with those related to representation, planning, coordination, control/assessment, human relations, community integration, pedagogy and innovation promotion. For the above reasons, the Master´s degree in School Administration seeks to equip students with the necessary training to carry out managerial tasks.

      It mainly focuses on the difficulties faced by those responsible for managing schools when planning long-term training programmes, as they cannot be absent from the schools they run for long periods of time.
