This Master offers the right training including subjects related to planning, leadership, technology, finance, organization, assessment and evaluation, and administration of schools considering the changing and complex environment in which we live.

This is a one-year Master program (Máster propio) and is accredited by the Universidad de Alcalá, a public university recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

It is further complemented with hands-on experience in a school in Madrid as a language assistant, through which students will come into contact with the social and cultural diversity of Spanish schools today.
