2012 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP)

Recruitment for the 2012 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP) has begun. 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 2012 program, scheduled for April 23 – 26, 2012, as well as the Fall 2012 program, to be held September 10 – 13, 2012. The programs are held at the Lake Arrowhead Conference Center. Supervisors, managers, and professionals who exhibit potential for management development are encouraged to apply.

Eligibility requirements for UCLA participants include:

  • Classification at PSS Grades 2-6 and equivalent
  • 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 2012 online MSAP application form (including applicant and supervisor components) can be found in Related Information.
The cost for the program is $995 (including all program materials and room and board for three days and two nights), payable through departmental recharge or personal check to Campus Human Relations.

Completed applications must be submitted online by February 15, 2012. For more information, contact Julia Sanchez at juliasanchez@chr.ucla.edu or 794-0853.
