One of the indicators of an effective quality assurance system in higher education institutions is the degree to which students acquire the program competences determined for the program they attend. In this study, it is aimed to evaluate the achievements of the graduate students in the field of educational administration programs in relation to the program competencies. In the study, the data triangulation was used. The research sample composed of 45 students. As a research sample techniques, the criterion sampling method was used. The data were collected by the "Education Administration Graduate Program Qualifications (EYLPY) Questionnaire" developed by the researchers. The data gathered by the questionnaires were analyzed by the SPSS program. The qualitative data of the study was analyzed by content analysis by using the NVIVO program. The findings of the research show that graduate students gained program qualifications at medium-level. The competences gained at least by MA students were the "learning competence"; and the highest was "communication and social competence" dimension. The competences s at least by the PhD. Students was the "ability to work independently and take responsibility"; and the highest was "learning competence" dimension. In addition, the participants stated that they have problems with the Student Information System (OBS), the curriculum, inability to access the faculty members and communication with the faculty members. Participants also stated that the course assessments were subjective and had a number of problems because of their advisors. The results show that the education administration and supervision program competencies are not acquired at the desired level by the students. For this reason, the education administration programs should be monitored evaluated and standardized program competencies should be established at the national level. In addition, the urgent elimination of deficiencies in the program and strengthening of weaknesses are important for developing the knowledge and skills of graduate students who have potential for future academic staff.
