Program Framework

Managing at UBC is a leadership development program designed to equip newer managers with the foundational skills, knowledge and tools to succeed and grow in leadership roles at UBC.

This program is open to M&P employees who manage direct report(s) for three years or less, and who can commit to engage fully in program offerings and assignments.

The framework for Managing @ UBC is based on a specific leadership model adapted by Peter Farey, Leaderskill Group, 2005.
