The Management Development Program is designed to boost management effectiveness by expanding understanding of roles, stimulating insights about personal strengths and challenges, and exploring and practicing concrete and practical management skills. Participants will use feedback from many sources and support from a coach to strengthen skills and capacity to achieve desired organizational results.

Instructors will use a variety of methods, including case studies, lectures, discussion, exercises, a 360-degree management assessment, self-assessments and videos. Small group and individual coaching during and between sessions will support participants in transfer of learning, personal development and accountability for change.

The program consists of 16 days of training conducted in two-day sessions held on a monthly basis.
