OVERVIEW:

UC Berkeley’s Engineering Leadership Professional Program (ELPP) is a 4-month program providing the professional development and specific skills to turn top-performing engineering managers and technical leaders into true enterprise leaders.  The ELPP program is parallel to a technology-focused MBA, but condensed into 4 months, part-time; it uniquely combines business insight, leadership skills, and an immersion in Silicon Valley’s most strategic technology trends.


TOPICS COVERED:

  • Influencing top-­‐level strategy as a technical leader or senior manager
  • Understanding the implications of today’s changing technology opportunities ranging from Internet services, electronic currency, wearable computing, semiconductor advancements, Internet of Things, EVs, 3D Printing, and healthcare service topics.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

The ELPP program enables technical experts and senior engineering managers to expertly manage and lead technical teams, develop  judgment  and  skills  in  opportunity  recognition,  product  management,  and financial operations from the perspective of a CFO and enhance the value derived from R&D and technical operations. At the completion of this course, participants will be able to contribute more effectively and at higher levels within the firm, exchanging  best  practices  and  joining  a  powerful  engineering  leadership  network  with colleagues from firms including Google, Yahoo!, Samsung, VMware, Lam Research, SanDisk, NetApp, Qualcomm, Cisco and Applied Materials.
