The International Education Management program is a joint venture of the Ludwigsburg University of Education, Germany, and the Helwan University, Cairo, Egypt. The program 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 International Education Management program from Ludwigsburg University of Education aims to provide competences for taking leadership positions in organizations 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 realize visions and abilities needed to lead teams and staff to specific goals and organizational development. It enables participants to take responsibility, to adopt innovative ideas for modern education processes, 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 import new knowledge into their own fields of educational or management practice.

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