The Management and Leadership Development Program (MLDP) engages sophomores, juniors, and seniors to develop management and leadership skills common to corporate, public, and not-for-profit sectors. In weekly sessions, guest speakers use experiential teaching techniques to encourage participants to conceptualize, experiment, act, and reflect on various concepts and technical competencies through a multitude of small group and individual activities. Participants develop practical skills that they can apply immediately to their leadership roles in campus organizations, internships, projects, and in their careers. Since offering the program in fall 2009, more than 350 students have participated in MLDP.
Successful completion of MLDP is a prerequisite to become a paid student assistant at the Rockefeller Center and/or participate in the Rockefeller Global Leadership Program. 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 Leadership Fellows Program.
