The presentation aims to emphasize the acute need for the ex­istence of coherent educational policies in educational institution manage­ment. It is anchored in the concrete example of these concerns in Romania in recent decades. Pre-service and in-service training of school managers is ar­gued as a necessity. A possible professionalizing of this occupation is high­lighted, following examples derived from a brief presentation of the prob­lem in the world. A curricular approach aiming at educational managers’ training within a concrete program of master’s studies existing at Transilva­nia University from Brașov is presented synthetically. Some universally val­id aspects of this training are highlighted. The presentation stresses the idea that all these aspects must be understood in depth both by the education­al policymakers, by the curriculum designers, and by those who implement the respective curricula. Awareness and accountability in this field increase the effectiveness both of school managers’ pre-service training and implicit­ly the quality of the educational approach at all levels of the education sys­tem, from early education to higher education.
