Our 10-month, rigorous and accredited curriculum is tailored for select rising senior executives to develop critical, innovative, and ethical decision makers. All graduates will leave our program with a Master of Science in National Resource Strategy and military officers will also earn Joint Professional Military Education II credit.
Our students are selected for their potential as future leaders at the highest levels of the Armed Forces, government service, international partners, and private industry. Each year, our approximate 330 students average 20+ years of professional experience and 85% enter the program with a Masters degree or higher. We are the only DoD institution to offer this diverse mix of public and private expertise and perspectives, creating a rich, unparalleled educational experience for our students.
Our exceptional faculty, as diverse as the student body, is comprised of distinguished civilian professors, active duty and retired military, and visiting professors from many government agencies and private industry. This blend of academic depth with relevant, current experience provides graduates with the tools necessary to develop strategy and align resources to solve our most difficult strategic national security challenges.
