Overview of MLDP

The Management and Leadership Development Program (MLDP) is a one-term program designed to develop citizen leaders among sophomores, juniors, and seniors at Dartmouth College. Led by expert guest speakers each week, sessions employ experiential teaching techniques to engage students through hands-on learning of core management and leadership skills. Participants work individually and in small groups throughout the program to develop practical skills that they can apply immediately to their leadership roles in campus organizations, internships, projects, and in their careers. Since beginning to offer the program in fall 2009, more than 500 students have participated in MLDP.

More information, including an example program syllabus, session titles and descriptions, speaker biographies, and more can be found in the Quick Links section on the upper right section of this page.

We welcome all sophomores, juniors, and seniors in any course of study to participate in this program.  MLDP will provide participants with ample opportunities to further engage with the Rockefeller Center, during and after completing the program.    

Successful completion of MLDP is a prerequisite to become a paid student assistant at the Rockefeller Center. MLDP will also strengthen students' applications for Rockefeller Center funding for unpaid internships in the field of public policy and other Rockefeller Center programs, such as the Rockefeller Global Leadership Program and the Rockefeller Leadership Fellows Program.
