Program Overview

Managing@UBC has been developed to provide personalized and customized learning for managers. In order to cater to your individual needs, the program adopts a self-directed learning approach where you can select from a menu of resources and access what is most relevant to you.   As a participant, you will receive support from the Leadership Program Manager and will be assigned a Program Advisor who will help guide and direct your learning depending on your specific needs.  Upon completion of a year in the program you will be entered into the Managing@UBC Community of Practice to continue discussions on management and leadership at the University.

  • Complete a leadership self-assessment
  • Establish goals with a Learning Lead
