The Management Development Programme (MDP) is our flagship executive programme that enables participants to expand their knowledge across all functional areas and develop a holistic management perspective. By integrating key functional disciplines, participants develop the capability to envision, influence, control and implement the strategic direction of the firm. 

The objective of MDP is to create successful business leaders who can compete by leveraging their own and their organisations’ inherent strengths. Residing together at LUMS, the participants immerse themselves in a two week-long learning experience that has been engineered to be rigorous, real in context and transformational.



The Management Development Programme at LUMS enables the participants to integrate key functional areas in an organisation and drive a result-focused business strategy. The objective of MDP is to create successful general managers who can compete and succeed by leveraging their own and their organisations’ inherent strengths in an integrated manner.

The programme will help participants to :

  • Acquire conceptual skills to understand business functions and their inter-relationships
  • Develop the ability to rethink business functions and lead change at different levels of an organisation
  • Understand how industry structures work and evaluate how to create value and profit for their operating units in a competitive environment

MDP curriculum has been designed to impart  learning which reinforces functional knowledge and bridges the core management areas of marketing, finance, operations, technology, leadership and team management with a view to create functional synergies. The curriculum has been mapped into two week-long modules. 

Integration of Key Management Functions - Covers the broad functional areas in order to enhance the general management skills and expose participants to other areas of management in which they may have limited knowledge and/or experience.

Managing the Strategic Direction of the Firm - Focuses on the ability of participants to view the organisation from a strategic perspective and in the process sharpen their leadership, interpersonal and negotiation skills. The aim is to enhance their impact as leaders, strategists and change agents. 



The programme is designed for high potential senior executives who have either taken-on, or are preparing to transit from functional to broader general management positions with at least 10 years of relevant work experience. 

A typical participant profile includes:

  • Country Managers
