Brian K. Work, MEd Leadership Graduate
I recently completed a Master of Education in Leadership through City University in Canada. The experience was overwhelmingly positive and has contributed to a deeper understanding of how to be effective in a school position. Throughout the program, I learned theory and principles of leadership and was challenged to develop my own personal leadership style and abilities. The program has an excellent balance of theory and practical opportunities.
One of the highlights of the program was the instructors. The faculty members bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their classes. Many of the faculty members were in roles of significant leadership and they were able to bring their experience into the classroom in a very practical manner.
I also appreciated the chance to work in a cohort program. Being with a consistent group of students afforded the opportunity to grow together and learn from each other’s journey.
I deeply appreciated the academic rigor and emphasis on authentic research. The skills I have learned, in this area, continue to shape my thinking and practice.
I would highly recommend City University in Canada to anyone who is interested in deepening their leadership skills and understandings. I have grown in my ability to work with people. I have also grown in my understandings of school dynamics. The Masters program was invaluable to my ability to grow as a professional, and was a personal challenge to continue to develop excellence in leadership.
