Senior Acquisition Course

As the premier course for members of the Defense Acquisition Corps, the Senior Acquisition Concentration (SAC) prepares military officers and civilians selected to attend the Eisenhower School for critical leadership and staff positions in acquisition. The SAC program consists of the 10-month Eisenhower School curriculum complemented by specialized acquisition-related electives including graduate-level seminars with individual and group research and writing projects. 

Eisenhower School students who have achieved Level III (or equivalent) DAWIA certification in one or more acquisition career fields are eligible to enroll in the Senior Acquisition Course.  Students who complete the SAC program receive a Master of Science in National Security Resource Strategy from the Eisenhower School and a Senior Acquisition Concentration diploma from DAU credited as ACQ 401.
