All levels of the education system require administrators, from the principal at an elementary school to a university president. In general, the job is to ensure students are getting the best education possible given the school's resources.

Education Requirements for Educational Administrators

The degree requirement for education administration jobs is high; a Master’s of Education (MEd) in Leadership Administration is the standard, with doctorates essential if you want to advance to top positions at the university level.

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.
