Management Development Certificate

UCLA staff and faculty can take advantage of a Management Development Certificate series designed to help management-level employees strengthen effectiveness in their current roles and prepare for future leadership opportunities. The Management Development Certificate supports UCLA’s workforce planning objectives, enhances retention of high-potential professionals and positions managers for success.

Design of the program was guided by a campuswide needs assessment that was conducted to identify competencies and plan management workshops. Previously piloted content is based on a mixture of elements sourced from Development Dimensions International, Center for Creative Leadership and in-house development.
