UCR launches management program in Coachella Valley

(February 8, 2001)

The A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Riverside will launch an Advanced Management Program for Coachella Valley residents this spring.

The nine-week program is designed to enhance managers' skills in dealing with people, working effectively within their own and with other organizations, and understanding today's highly competitive business environment. Effective managers understand the complexity of today's business world and are willing to use new ideas and processes in their organizations, according to Monica Vollucci, assistant director for executive education.

The 35-hour certificate program has been popular with managers in the Riverside program for 13 years. The growing need in the Coachella Valley for advanced management training has prompted UCR management school officials to begin offering classes in Palm Springs on April 24.

Times and locations are not yet available. Cost for the program is $2,400, which includes tuition, materials, a welcome reception, and a graduation dinner.
