UCLA Management Enrichment Program

The UCLA Management Enrichment Program (MEP) is designed to provide a framework for enhancing decision-making and leadership skills, particularly in critical areas such as strategic planning, financial management, and human resources, along with understanding the context in which decisions are made at UCLA. Upon completing the program, each participant will have an increased understanding of the theory and practice of high-level decision-making, the context within which decisions are made at UCLA, and membership in a broader cohort of UCLA problem solvers/decision-makers.

MEP consists of eight half-day sessions between February and June 2022, each of which will last approximately four hours. The sessions are intended to be interactive and will be facilitated. Each session will include a presentation by subject experts, case studies or group work, presentation/discussion by a panel of UCLA senior managers, and time for Q&A throughout the session.  

MEP’s target audience is Manager 1 and above in Career Tracks or equivalent MSP classifications. Ideally, participants have experience as chief administrative/financial managers of academic and administrative departments. Participation is limited to 25 attendees, expecting that all modules will be completed. This cohort-based program has no fee for course materials.

Registration and nominations for participation in the program typically begin in January. Participants are notified of their selection in early February, and the workshops are held from February through June.
