The United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) is pleased to announce an Open House Webinar at 8-9 am EST on 2 March for the UN System Executive Management Programme, UNSSC’s flagship management development programme for UN officials in management and leadership functions at headquarters and in the field (mainly at P5+ or equivalent levels). Hosted by our Programme team and expert faculty members, the Webinar will provide a deeper look into some of the key elements that set apart the UN System Executive Management Programme, and the unique resources that participants will receive as part of the Programme.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the various UN reform processes currently underway call for UN managers to lead more effective teams; deliver increasingly meaningful results; become role models for UN leadership values and behaviours; contribute to transforming the organization by fostering a culture of innovation; implement change; and ultimately strengthen the UN’s ability to achieve the 2030 Agenda.

These issues have been highlighted by the experiences brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the concurrent transition in management focus.

The UN System Executive Management Programme (EMP) is tailor-made to prepare UN staff in leadership and management positions to achieve these objectives. The Programme has been designed to provide practical tools and knowledge to help managers address the complex realities they face, improving speed, responsiveness, and impact, both in challenging field locations and at headquarters.

This Programme leverages UNSSC's academic network, instructional design expertise, and position within the UN system to create a highly-relevant, engaging, impactful and cost-effective programme. The curriculum combines real-life case studies from across the UN system with tested management tools and models, delivered by an interdisciplinary international faculty team and UN-experienced Coaches.
