Management Development Program (MDP)

UC Davis Talent Management will offer the UC Management Development Program (MDP) this October - November 2017.

The nomination period will open in early fall. 

The MDP curriculum is designed to enhance and strengthen UC manager capabilities in four core competencies – People Management, Employee Engagement, Influence, and Change Leadership. The program is intended for managers who manage other supervisors or leads and/or manage complex programs or projects. UC Office of the President and a consortium of training and performance improvement professionals throughout UC worked with industry leaders in talent management and leadership development to create four modules of content. The curriculum includes topics and discussions relevant to the demands facing UC managers.

Although the program cost is approximately $550 per participant, HR Talent Management will be covering the cost for all selected participants for the four-day program. Details are included in the call for nominations (pdf).

MDP is open to both UC Davis and UC Davis Health System managers and is intended specifically for those who manage other supervisors or leads and/or manage complex programs or projects. I invite you nominate up to three participants for the upcoming program. Thirty participants from across both the Davis campus and the Health System will be selected from those nominated.
