The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the number of Leadership administration jobs will increase by about 15% through 2022. This pace is about as fast as average when compared to all other occupations. There should be more opportunities for leadership administrators at colleges and universities in the coming years than at primary or secondary schools, because student enrollment is growing most rapidly at the postsecondary level.
