Develop the Expert Skills You Need to be an Effective Manager in International Education

Have you recently been promoted to a managerial position at your institution? Do you see management in your future? Have you been leading staff for years but feel you aren't reaching your full potential as a manager?

Through this interactive, two-and-a-half day professional development experience, the trainers of the Management Development Program will help you find and apply the management principles that work best for you.


I now feel that I have greater insight into how I can better manage the staff members I supervise. This workshop gave me the resources to think about the challenges I/my office faces systematically.Participant, St. Louis 2013
