Description/content

International Education Management (INEMA) is a joint venture of the Ludwigsburg University of Education in Germany and the Helwan University in Cairo, Egypt. The programme is designed to provide and develop managerial and leadership skills as well as competencies for cross-cultural challenges in education management and for international reform processes in education.

The programme is accredited in Germany as well as in Egypt. Graduates receive a joint Master's degree. In view of the international orientation of the programme, courses are tailored to the globalisation of markets and the needs of the participating students.

The programme aims to provide competences for taking leadership positions in organisations in the educational realm. It also aims to equip participants with the tools necessary to deal with cross-cultural challenges in the field of international education management. It covers strategies and operational know-how to realise visions and abilities needed to lead teams and staff to specific goals and organisational development. It enables participants to take responsibility, adopt innovative ideas for modern education processes, and set up strategies and structures as well as implement quality development.

The transfer of knowledge into practical competencies and vice versa is achieved by bringing real-life problems into classroom discussions. The participants integrate new knowledge into their own fields of educational or management practice.

The funding partners are the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ). The programme is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Course organisation

INEMA is a blended learning programme, which means that it is designed to be completed alongside professional commitments.

The Master's programme is designed to take between four and six semesters to complete. For ambitious students, the fast track makes it possible to complete the entire programme within four semesters. The regular track consists of six semesters, leaving more time for academic writing, reflection and for completing online learning assignments and other tasks. The programme consists of three semesters with attendance phases (semesters 1, 2 and 3) and one or three semesters without attendance phases (semester 4 for the fast track, and also semesters 5 and 6 for the regular track).

The programme puts a strong focus on transfer of experiences. This is made possible through exchanges between students, interactive transfer sessions, best practice studies, internships and project work.

International Education Management is divided into five study fields:
Study Field A: General Competencies
Study Field B: Organisational Processes and Controlling
Study Field C: Educational Planning and Administration
Study Field D: International Affairs and Cross-Cultural Competencies
Study Field E: Research and Practical Transfer

Each study field focuses on a specific subject area. The subject area is treated step by step in modules. A detailed breakdown of the study fields and modules can be found on our homepage:
