2017 Management Skills Assessment Program
Recruitment for the 2017 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP) is now open. The program is designed for high potential, early career supervisors, managers, and professionals who are part of the University’s talent pool for future leadership opportunities. The program integrates all ten UC campuses into one program hosted at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center.
MSAP enables participants to identify their 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 both the Spring and Fall 2017 programs, scheduled for April 17-20 and October 9-12, 2017, respectively. 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 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 2017 online MSAP application form (including applicant and supervisor components) can be found in Related Information.
The cost of the program is $1,095 (including all program materials and room and board for three days and two nights), payable through departmental recharge or personal check to CHR.
Completed applications must be submitted online by January 23, 2017. For more information, please contact Training and Development Manager Julia Sanchez at email@example.com or (310) 794-0853.
