One. Teaching features in MBA


As a kind of professional management degree, MBA education has the following obvious characteristics different from general academic research of graduate education: First, the goal of MBA education is to train practical talents of management. Second, MBA’s professional structure is perfect including a number of areas of Business Administration, graduates will have broad and comprehensive management knowledge.

MBA cultivated talents have had a positive impact for China's socialist construction and reform. Currently trained MBA students are increasingly becoming outstanding management talents of the industry, become CEOs leading the industries to a wonderful further.


Two. Chinese Kindergarten Principals’ confusion


Kindergartens as educational institutions, with the requirements of social development, they are facing increasingly fierce market competition, principal the soul of kindergarten --is under more and more pressure. He/She should consider not only the students, but also to find ways to improve the welfare for the staff, make every attempt to meet the needs of the parents; can’t completely leave his/her job because has to take charge in everything. Lots of principals feel exhausted. In fact, the root cause for this is the management idea of principal is not open enough. There are thoughts to have a way out. Under the condition of market economy, principals will gradually realize the operation of enterprise. How do they change old ideas in management and education, accept new ones and benefit? Kindergarten management faces the challenge of market economy, like a sail against the current; for surviving and developing, they must enhance their competitiveness to meet new challenges. Therefore, it is necessary for principals to learn management knowledge, changing from the ‘affairs principals’ to ‘management principals’.


At present, it’s easy to hire a teacher but hard to find a principal, not to mention a good one! Principals will gradually transform to professionalism, the outstanding principals have become the most scarcest resources on the market, and competent principals is the focus of many kindergartens. Chinese kindergarten principal's long-term growth and cultivation was usually through self-study and traditional teach by precept and example, but the current community training is mostly on short-term training. It only talks about books theory, the operability is not strong, which can not truly improve the management capacity of the principal's.


Three. KMBA -- understand management, fine education, good operation


At present, the kindergarten management system in our country has undergone profound changes. How to draw lessons from the success of MBA education, help kindergarten principals transit from ‘affairs principals’ to ‘management principals’ and adapt to the new situation of China's preschool education market? HONG KONG INSTITUTE OF PRESCHOOL EDUCATION and Guangzhou Golden Education Group hire management experts and professors to make a special study on kindergarten management.

Four. KMBA(kindergarten management)


Kindergartens are facing increasingly fierce market competition, principal the soul of kindergarten --is under more and more pressure.

Five.MBA enhance the management consciousness of principals


Associate Professor, Department of Educational Management Academy, South China Normal University, Dr. Wang Hong thinks it novel to let kindergarten principals study MBA. Attending MBA course is a reflection on current educational management reform.


She said that China's kindergartens have gone through several stages of development, from the earliest custody, parenting, resolving worries to the characteristic education based on the market. In recent years, it seems everyone knows the use of characteristics to participate in the competition.However, the current market awareness of our kindergarten principals is still relatively weak. She said during an inspection tour in Hongkong, when it comes to recruit students, principals there can immediately think of the pricing of how many parents can accept, how parents think and how they should do not complain. The mainland is used to the government’s domination that they don't need to think so much.


Wong Hong believes that the current views on ‘education is an industry’ has been widely recognized, Kindergarten reform is also in close proximity. Whatever the nature of the kindergarten has to participate in market competition, especially after joining the WTO, foreign educational concept and business model have brought greater impact on China's preschool industry. Thus increasing demands for principal has enlightened mind, a good educational philosophy, strong operation and service awareness, and good management quality. MBA is the course of a business philosophy, it is with the current market demand for education reform. Although principals do not have to get a MBA degree in the training courses, their abilities will be improved.


Six. Positions of principals transit from the duty type to professional type


MBA course has become more and more popular. In the last summer, nearly 100 kindergarten principals accept KMBA training.


Journalists saw that nearly 100 people attended 6 consecutive days of KMBA training course held by Guangzhou Golden Education Group. They are young kindergarten principals and backbones of the business who have a bachelor degree or above from Guangzhou and Pearl River Delta area.


It is known that in the past holiday season, the government educational departments have held the relevant training courses dedicated to the kindergarten, but most of them are only involved in teaching and research. But this KMBA training course was firstly combine MBA management theory and practical work in the kindergarten. Reported by different MBA professors and supplemented by the kindergarten management cases. The course covers on interpersonal skills, human resources management, kindergarten principals’ self-protection legal countermeasures, investigation and study on British education management. The principals became more open minded due to those advanced management concepts. They told reporters that with the bigger and bigger pace of reform in preschool education institutions, the traditional experienced kindergarten principals have to be more benefited, effective and efficient. The MBA program timely gives them a perfect way to meet the urgent need for comprehensive reform from the concept to method in management.
