Management Skills Assessment Program

Program Highlights

About the Program 

The Management Skills Assessment Program is a unique assessment center experience which over time, cumulatively builds a valuable talent pipeline that assists the University in supporting upward mobility and deployments of talent as workforce needs unfold into the future. It fosters institutional loyalty among assessee participants, teaches assessors from UC campuses enlightened and effective management practices, and benefits sponsoring departments and their campuses by improving their participants in a variety of important ways - performance, role effectiveness, morale, and self-confidence.  All program components promote alignment between the program itself, institutional workforce needs, organizational direction and participants' aspirations at a critical time in the competition for talent in the marketplace.
