Management Seminar Series

January 31, 2014

Summary: Management Seminars offer quarterly, half-day workshops for UCLA managers in a partnership between Campus Human Resources’ Training and Development and UCLA’s Anderson School Executive Education Program. Each year’s program is organized around a theme of topics relevant to current issues and emerging management trends.

These seminars offer unique professional development for University leaders by world-class faculty, right here on campus. They feature relevant tools and approaches that have direct impact on improving organizations, innovations in management education and engage participants and their colleagues in intellectual stimulation and learning.

Participating managers can:

  • Gain first-hand access to distinguished faculty
  • Learn about research-based practical applications for organizational success
  • Sharpen organizational and leadership skills
  • Receive powerful techniques that can be immediately implemented at work
  • Interact with UCLA colleagues who share similar workplace challenges

The theme for 2017-18 is "Enhancing Your Strategic Focus." The program, designed to strengthen management competencies to effectively lead a diverse workforce in a fast-changing and challenging work environment, features presentations by national experts in their fields and interactive dialogue with campus peers and colleagues.
