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.
