Doctorate in Educational Leadership (Ed.D.) Programs

Thirty years ago, a person who wanted to work in school, university, or district administrative positions would major in educational administration, a field that applies general business administration principles to educational institutions. There are still a few educational administration programs around, but they’re now vastly outnumbered by programs in educational leadership, a newer interdisciplinary field marketed to look at educational institutions more as community projects, not as businesses.
