2020 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP)

Dear Colleagues:

UCLA Campus Human Resources is pleased to announce that recruitment is now open for the 2020 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP).

MSAP is designed to assess and evaluate the management skills of high potential, early career supervisors and managers for future leadership opportunities at the University. The program is conducted at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center, and all campuses from the University of California participate.

The program enables candidates to identify managerial strengths, determine areas for development and learn about the range of competencies necessary for effective management. Participants work with trained assessors to develop an individualized professional development plan.

Applications are currently being accepted for both the spring and fall 2020 sessions which are scheduled for April 20–23, 2020 and October 12-15, 2020, respectively. We strongly recommend that department leaders discuss MSAP with supervisors and managers 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.

Additional information along with the 2020 online MSAP application (including applicant and supervisor components) can be found at the MSAP website.

The cost of the program is $1,525 (including all materials, room and meals for the length of the program), payable through departmental recharge or personal check to UCLA Campus Human Resources.

Completed applications must be submitted online no later than 4 p.m., Wednesday, January 8, 2020. For more information, contact Darlene Mininni at or (310) 794-7685.
