The purpose of the doctoral program is to meet the needs of mid-career professionals who already have leadership experience in public or private schools, in community programs, in governmental agencies, or in NGOs with major education initiatives.  This program builds on Manhattanville's educational leadership master's and Professional Diploma certification programs for building level and/or district-level leadership.  Accepted students will have both early career leadership experience and the initial licensure/certification/program requirements for their chosen career path as leaders in education.

Students complete a three-year program of study that tightly integrates coursework, field experiences, and applied research (59 semester hours of post-master's credit including dissertation).  The focus is on preparing leaders to work in changing suburbs and small cities, and the signature pedagogy is problem-based learning.  The doctoral program experiences are organized around five themes:  leading learning organizations, becoming a sophisticated practitioner-scholar, developing self and others, participating in professional and policy-making communities, and facilitating responsive education programs. The program offers the option to do a three-article dissertation or a traditional five-chapter dissertation.
