The fast development of technology, changes in national and international development plans, and globalization of education have created competition among higher education institutions. Besides, there have been heightened expectations from higher education institutions. Therefore, the roles of higher education administrators have become more complicated, varied, and vague. In this process of change, higher education administrators are expected to develop new skills and strategies for ensuring sustainable development in their institutions. Higher Education Administration and Leadership Master’s Program is designed for those who intend to pursue a career in administrative roles in higher education institutions. The program aims to provide graduate students with the core of higher education administration and leadership along with providing a background to enable them to integrate theory and practice. There are many higher education administration graduate programs in the world. Bahçeşehir University takes pride in having the first Higher Education Administration and Leadership Master’s Program in Turkey that focuses on training and ensuring professional development of academic and non-academic administrators.
- The Master’s Program in Higher Education Administration and Leadership comprises seven courses, a seminar course, and a Master’s thesis.
- The thesis program must be completed in 4 to 6 semesters. Students who fail to complete their programs by the end of their sixth semester, are allowed to continue their studies but they do not benefit from students’ rights.
- For a six-semester program, freezing registration will not be allowed for more than 2 semesters in total. Courses in the programs are typically delivered between 19:00 and 22:00 on weekdays at Beşiktaş Campus.
