Managing@UBC is a year-long leadership development program focused on supporting individuals to learn the knowledge and skills needed to thrive as new managers to UBC. The program is for M&P employees who have staff directly reporting to them, and who are within their first three years at UBC in a management position.
- a cohort-based model for individuals to have the benefit of meeting and learning from other managers from across the campus.
- support to enhance one’s leadership development, including coaching, leadership assessments and program advisors.
- a self-directed learning model that allows participants to determine their own learning path and the ability to choose which learning will be most impactful to their own leadership development.
Managing@UBC runs June through May. Applications for this year’s program are due April 2.
Why leadership development is important to UBC?
A fundamental principle of our leadership programs at UBC, is that every individual has the capability and numerous opportunities over the span of a lifetime to lead, and when we are able to recognize and act upon the opportunities as they emerge we exercise leadership for those with whom we are interacting. What we believe about leadership has a profound influence on what we do as leaders and how we enact leadership.
