Program Structure

The Master in Coaching and Mentoring program at Eton University comprises of 6 comprehensive taught modules, each carefully curated to cover critical aspects of coaching and mentoring, from theories and concepts to managing organisational culture and behaviour. As a culmination of your academic journey, you will undertake a transformative capstone project, where you'll apply your acquired knowledge to solve real-world coaching and mentoring challenges.


Our MA program offers you unparalleled flexibility in managing your academic journey. While the standard duration is approximately one year, Eton University understands that every student's learning pace varies. Thus, you have the freedom to decide how fast you want to study, giving you the liberty to complete the program sooner or later than the standard duration.

For an optimal study experience, we recommend enrolling in two modules per quarter, which leads to a program completion duration of five quarters (approximately 1.25 years). This structure allows for three quarters dedicated to the taught modules and two quarters devoted to the capstone project. For those seeking an accelerated path, taking a full load of three modules per quarter, an MA degree can be earned in just four quarters (1 year).
