2016 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP)

Recruitment for the 2016 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP) has started. 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. Last year, the program integrated all 10 UC campuses into one program for the first time. UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center continues to host the programs.

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 2016 programs, scheduled for April 18-21 and October 10-13, 2016, 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.

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 February 8, 2016. For more information, please contact Julia Sanchez at or (310) 794-0853.
