Management & Leadership Development Program Now Accepting Applications for 2011-2012

Article Type 

The Management Leadership Development Program (MLDP) focuses on management and leadership principals common to corporate, public, and not-for-profit sectors, enhancing participants' knowledge, experience and competency through weekly evening sessions.

These weekly sessions, led by guest speakers, cover targeted capacities related to: leadership theory; differences between management and leadership; public speaking and communication; persuasive writing; problem solving, decision-making and negotiation; analytical and critical thinking; facilitation; program management; and business etiquette. Common themes of global leadership, cultural competence, ethics, and public policy, unite the sessions.

MLDP is a prerequisite for students who wish to work as a Rockefeller Center Student Program Assistant or Student Discussion Group Leader, and is preferred when applying for Internship Funding or Rockefeller Center mini-grants.  Each session employs a variety of techniques, including lecture, small-group work, interactive role-plays, experiential learning, self-reflection, and assessment. Sessions are designed to facilitate connections with students' individual management goals and aspirations.

Applications for the Rockefeller Center's Fall 2011 Management & Leadership Development Program are due on Monday, May 16th. Complete the application online.

You can also apply now for a spot in the Winter 2012 or Spring 2012 group.

Questions? Email, or stop by the MLDP table at Collis from 3-7 PM on Friday, May 13th.
