The Management Development for Entrepreneurs program is an intensive learning experience incorporating lectures, case discussions and workshops, with 30 hours of instruction. Before arriving to lectures, entrepreneurs complete select readings and homework assignments that improve the depth and quality of in-class discussion. The MDE program manager gives participants the support needed to balance MDE activities with the demands of their businesses by providing them with lecture readings and materials, coordinating meals and parking, and communicating program reminders and updates.
Chosen from UCLA Anderson’s award-winning faculty, MDE instructors are distinguished for their contributions to entrepreneurial education and small business consulting. They have proven success in teaching entrepreneurs the techniques to build and manage effective and profitable organizations.
Corporate sponsors underwrite the program costs to offer a discounted rate of $4,500. Tuition for the 10-day program includes orientation, the opening banquet, more than 60 hours of classroom instruction, MBA consultation, leadership evaluation, computer integrations, books and materials, meals, parking and the graduation ceremony and banquet.
