XXI Century is the era of education, more specifically the era of skill. However, it is clearly observed that the education is not sufficiently provided in the society. It is caused by the lack of human resource and sustainable government policy in education sector. We are facing the need to address following an issue in this era of rapid development of economics and technology throughout the whole world: How to train qualified personnel to compete at the world human resource market at the same time maintaining the national characteristics in the era of world globalization?
In order to find a solution to address the vital issues towards the education sector in Mongolia, it is necessary to study the trend in education management. By doing so, it will open more opportunities to understand the paradigm and the basis for theory in education, and to develop new policy in perfect sync to the social demand. Therefore, I am focusing to conduct my thesis work in education management.
