About the course

Strengthening the Entrepreneurial Management and Leadership Skills of Head Start Executives

Designed from a strategic planning perspective, the UCLA Head Start Management Fellows Program provides a unique opportunity for Head Start executives to participate in a 12-day intensive leadership and management development training session at UCLA Anderson School of Management. Since 1991, the program has trained over 1,600 Head Start directors and managers who provide comprehensive services to nearly 1 million economically disadvantaged children and their families each day.

Special Program Features

  • The Management Improvement Project (MIP) The MIP is the practical application or experiential component of the program, allowing participants to immediately translate the UCLA program curriculum to improve performance at their own organizations. It identifies and addresses an organizational weakness or external opportunity through the development of a strategic plan for tackling an issue.

  • Individual Consultation by MBA Students The program employs MBA students as Teaching Associates (TA) who lead small study groups to clarify and discuss session content with participants and act as consultants as participants develop their strategic projects.

  • Technology-Enabled Online Learning Community A Web-based "learning management system" coordinates the education process and delivers some of the program content. An easily accessible information source for online presentations, reading and useful links, the system is available to Fellows as a resource upon completing the program.
