Higher Education Administration and Leadership Master’s Program at the BAU is designed for those who intend to pursue a career in administrative roles in higher education institutions. 


The fast development of technology, changes in national and international development plans, and globalization of education have created competition among higher education institutions.

Besides, there have been heightened expectations from higher education institutions. Therefore, the roles of higher education administrators have become more complicated, varied, and vague. In this process of change, higher education administrators are expected to develop new skills and strategies for ensuring sustainable development in their institutions.


The Higher Education Administration and Leadership program at BAU aims to provide graduate students with the core of higher education administration and leadership along with providing a background to enable them to integrate theory and practice. There are many higher education administration graduate programs in the world.

BAU takes pride in having the first Higher Education Administration and Leadership Master’s Program in Turkey that focuses on training and ensuring professional development of academic and non-academic administrators.
