In Germany, there is no compulsory and nation-wide standardized qualification for school principals. If teachers still want to prepare for a management position, they can register for one of the study programs in education management that have been offered increasingly since the turn of the millennium in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, German-speaking Switzerland, regions in Luxembourg). The following report investigates the offer of master’s programs in education management in Germany and describes its development in recent years. The report also indicates which knowledge the curricula offer and which differences can be identified. The article focuses on developments in Germany.
