The Management Development Program (MDP) is our flagship executive program 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 organizations’ 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.
