Earn an Educational Leadership and Management Graduate Degree and Lead the Way to Positive Change

At the California School of Education, we have a singular mission: to foster impactful leaders. Our California-based graduate programs in Educational Leadership and Management cultivate educational professionals who enact positive change in environments where change itself is the only constant.

Where vision takes form in reality. Where passion emerges as transformation. Where educating yourself is done with the pure intent to educate others.

Alliant International University’s California School of Education is where lifelong learners can foster their innate desire to make lifelong change.

In the Doctor of Educational Leadership and Management program, topics like global education trends, ethics of curriculum theory, and administrative and governance systems give you a glimpse into the world’s learning curve. Advanced finance, human resources, and mergers and acquisitions courses allow you a look into the business of learning. These courses, alongside your dissertation, prepare you with the skillset you need for careers in executive leadership and educational administration in public, private, and higher institutions of thought leadership.

The EdD in Educational Leadership and Management encourages change in an educational system struggling to adapt. It promotes community outreach to build bridges between the home and the school.

From Education to Aspiration

The dedication from, and interaction with, our faculty is imperative for success so we keep our classes small, which means you get big opportunities to connect with your instructor, classmates, and staff. From projects, research and readings throughout your coursework, to the entire topic of your dissertation, you get guidance from those who have been there before. So you can get where you want to go.

With direct mentorship from your instructor, you will work through a dissertation model that focuses on educational theory and applicable research – with a distinct spotlight on diversity. Online learners, adult students, K-12 administration, and community college leadership are just some of the many diverse thesis topics students in this program have explored.

The Embodiment of Success

Completion of the EdD-educational leadership online program at Alliant means more than a new acronym at the end of your name. It could mean reaching the apex of your educational aspirations. Forging down paths yet to be discovered. Becoming an architect of one of our most crucial societal intuitions. And, being armed with the tools to affect change for generations to come.

Advocacy Personified. Through the lens of personal and professional ethics, a strong sense of justice, and integrity, you’ll learn how to be the voice of the countless stakeholders who rely on strong educational leaders.

The Alliant Choice

We don’t take it lightly when a student chooses us for their education. Making Alliant International University your home means choosing more than just a school. It means choosing quality, from faculty to finish.

Learning at Alliant is not just about coursework, though that’s paramount. It’s not just about internships, though they’re vital. The greatness of an institution of higher education can be found in the harmonious balance of both scholarship and hands-on training. It’s also found in those you are learning with, learning from, and how you will transform your education into impact.

In our interconnected world, homogeny has been replaced with heterogeneity. At Alliant, it’s not about “fitting in,” because there is no one way to be. Our student body is uniquely diverse, they come from a world of backgrounds and they’ve all had a unique experience. Your exposure to this wealth of diverse experiences will help shape you into a more culturally- refined individual, while still sharing the one thing that all of our students have in common: A desire to better the world.

Helpful. Supportive. Open. These are just some of the ways our staff have been described by students. From application to graduation, we are here to help you succeed. And our faculty? They’re some of the best in their field, working professionals who are not only intimately familiar with changing trends, but are often the ones making change happen.

We know that everyone has a unique story and situation. That is why we tailor our programs to fit the needs of first-time freshmen and transfer students alike. We firmly believe that education should be accessible to all. Alliant will meet you right where you are. Right when you need us.
