About the Partnership

UNM is partnering with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation on a unique and innovative master’s degree: an MBA in Education Leadership. This interdisciplinary program combined the resources of the School of Business and the College of Education to equip students with best practices in management and education.

The program was designed with an interdisciplinary basis that enables Fellows to engage with and learn from a variety of educational leaders, including:

  • Faculty from the College of Education
  • Faculty from the School of Business
  • Local educational leaders with administrative experience
  • Business leaders with management experience

Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation

Woodrow Wilson Foundation LogoThe Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellowship in Education Leadership recruits and prepares outstanding leaders for schools and districts in participating
states. The goal: to address the United States’ twin educational achievement gaps - the one between the nation’s lowest performing and its best schools, as well as the one between the nation’s best schools and their top international competitors. The Fellowship seeks both to prepare leaders who can bring all American schools up to world-class levels of performance and to develop a new gold standard for preparing education leaders.
