What can you do with a master’s degree in Leadership of Educational Organizations?
Earning an M.Ed. in Leadership of Educational Organizations can show employers that you’re passionate about education, demonstrate your knowledge of both the theory and practice, and highlight your experience in the field.
Completing an M.Ed. also demonstrates to employers that you’ve done focused, hands-on projects and have probably started building resources that can be used later on in your professional work. And that could be quite advantageous—according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, people who have a master's degree earn 18% more per week than those with a bachelor's degree.1
