Candidates may not directly apply to the MBA in Education Leadership Program. Candidates must initially be nominated by leaders of the school district / charter school / etc. where they are employed. After nomination, candidates will be contacted by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and directed to submit an on-line application to the Foundation and to initiate an application to Indiana State University for the MBA in Education Leadership.
District leaders must make the nominations on-line to the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation at: woodrow.org/nomination-form. Nominators will find more information on the program at the Foundation website: woodrow.org/fellowships/ww-ed-mba/info/information-for-nominators/. Please review the ""Guidelines for Nominators" which you will find at that website. Nominators should contact the Director of MBA in Education Leadership at Indiana State University if they have any questions.
Candidates must be employed as educators in the district / school at the time of nomination and they must be employed during the year that the candidate completes the program. Once a candidate is selected, district leaders and ISU faculty will collaborate to develop the appropriate conditions to enable the candidate to complete the practicum requirement and a project addressing a compelling issue in the district school.
After completing the program, the candidate is expected to secure a building level administrator position within one year. Indiana State University and the staff of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation will collaborate to provide Executive Coaching for the candidate for three years.
