The Centre for Management Development (CMD) was established within the Faculty of Business Administration at Memorial University in 1980. Its mission is to facilitate excellence in managerial development by working with organizations to determine their specific needs, and to arrange for the delivery of products or programmes which best meet these needs.

The CMD acts as an intermediary between the client and the available sources of managerial development expertise. The focus of our efforts, and our principal responsibility, is the monitoring and maintenance of quality throughout the managerial development process from design through delivery and follow-up. We do not maintain our own permanent program delivery staff.

The Centre for Management Development works with a variety of organizational clients from both the private and public sectors, including professional and industry associations and not-for profit agencies and groups. In addition, it continues to offer a range of professional development programmes throughout the year.

Each year the CMD runs an Executive Development Program (EDP), presenting participants with leading edge management techniques that focus on organizational success, effective performance, quality and competitiveness. Faculty for the EDP regularly include facilitators from across North America and Europe.

The Centre for Management Development's state-of-the-art facilities are located on the fourth floor of the Faculty of Business Administration building at Memorial University and include various styles of classrooms, work areas, dining facilities, and a participant lounge.
