Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP): Call for nominations

UCOP employees can apply now through Jan. 28 for a spot in this spring’s Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP), to get valuable insight into their management skills and abilities. Offered at UC for a number of years, the MSAP assesses the management skills of high potential, early career supervisors and managers for future leadership opportunities at the university.

Applications are currently being accepted for the spring 2016 program, which is scheduled for April 18 – 21 at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead. We strongly recommend that department heads discuss the program with supervisors and managers who exhibit potential for management development and encourage them to apply.

Eligibility requirements for participants include:

  • Full-time career status with a current performance evaluation of satisfactory (or better)
  • Designation as a supervisor or manager

UCOP is allotted two slots for the program. Participants will be selected based on an evaluation of their:

  • career goals in management
  • level of skills essential for performing management functions
  • demonstrated career path and/or strong commitment to management skill development

You can find more information and the 2016 online MSAP application form (including applicant and supervisor components) at:

The cost for the program is $1,095, which includes all program materials and the hotel stay, but not transportation costs. Departments of those selected will be charged.

Completed applications must be submitted online by 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28.
