The UC Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP) is a highly effective University-wide management development program open to entry level managers, first line supervisors, and Professional and Support Staff (PSS) at the __Assistant III Supervisor level and above.
The program, based on extensive research in the fields of management and organizational behavior, is comparable to programs available elsewhere at a much higher cost and provides a valuable learning experience for employees.
The next UC Management Skills Assessment Program occurs October 3-6, 2006 with an application deadline of August 11, 2006.
The program is held at the UCLA Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead. The program fee for assessees is $795.00, and the fee covers tuition and room and board for four days and three nights. Staff Education and Development may be able to provide some Staff Affirmative Action funding to assist with the program fee for those accepted as assessees.
The Staff Education and Development division of the Human Resources Department coordinates the program. An assessee application form may be found at: http://www-hr.ucsd.edu/staffeducation/catalog/MSAP.pdf
Campus managers at the equivalent of senior analyst level or above who are interested in participating as an assessor in the UC Management Skills Assessment Program may obtain an application by contacting Linda Veliz, MSAP Coordinator, Staff Education and Development, at (858) 534-4890. Managers who attend as assessors pay no fee.
