2010 Management Skills Assessment Program

Campus Human Resources (CHR) is pleased to announce recruitment for the 2010 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP). This program, conducted in coordination with the other southern UC campuses, is designed to assess the management skills of high potential, early career supervisors, managers and professionals for future leadership opportunities at the University.

MSAP enables participants to identify managerial strengths, determine areas for improvement, learn about the range of skills necessary for effective management and practice those skills in a supportive environment. Participants work with an assigned assessor to design an individualized development plan.

Applications are currently being accepted for the Spring 2010 program, scheduled for April 19 – 22, and the Fall 2010 program, to be held October 11 – 14, 2010. The programs are held at the Lake Arrowhead Conference Center. We strongly recommend that department heads discuss the program with supervisors, managers and professionals who exhibit potential for management development and encourage them to apply.

Eligibility requirements for UCLA participants include:

  • Classification at PSS Grades 2-6
  • Full-time career status with a current, satisfactory (or better) performance evaluation
  • Designation as a supervisor or manager

Participants will be selected based on an evaluation of the applicant's (1) career goals in management, (2) level of skills essential for performing management functions and (3) demonstrated career path and/or strong commitment to management skill development.

Further information and the 2010 online MSAP application form (including applicant and supervisor components) can be found in Related Information.

Completed applications must be submitted online by February 1, 2010.

The cost for the program is $925 (includes room and board for three days and two nights), payable through departmental recharge or personal check to CHR.
