Managing @ UBC Info Session - MAU

*Managing@UBC is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 cohort from February 4 until April 2, 2019*

What is Managing@UBC?

Managing@UBC is a yearlong leadership development program focused on supporting individuals to learn the knowledge and skills needed to thrive as new managers to UBC.

The Program recognizes the significant responsibility managers hold for employee performance and engagement and the achievement of unit goals.

By participating in this program, new managers will join a cohort and have the benefit of meeting and learning from other managers from across the campus. In addition, the Program offers a number of additional supports to enhance development, including coaching, leadership assessments, and Program advisors. Because Managing@UBC uses a self-directed learning model, new managers will be able to determine their own learning path and the ability to choose which learning will be most impactful to their own leadership development.

Learning Outcomes

By participating in the program, participants will:

  • SUPPORT - be supported in their job
  • VALUED - feel valued and supported in working towards their full potential
  • EXPECTATION AND OBLIGATIONS - be able to articulate expectations and obligations for the management role within the culture envisioned by Focus on People: Workplace Practices at UBC
  • ROLE UNDERSTANDING - have a broadened understanding of the role of managing people at UBC along with the resources available to fulfill that role
  • SELF-DIRECTED - be expected and encouraged to identify and work towards their own developmental goals
  • RESOURCES - be introduced to key resource people at the University and feel part of an expanded network


For individuals who are within their first 3 years in a management position, the cost of the program is fully subsidized.


Managing@UBC is open and available to M&P employees who have staff directly reporting to them and are within their first three years at UBC in a management position. If you're interested in finding out more about the program and how it can support your role as a new Manager at UBC, then this session is for you.
