A study was performed to develop the curriculum that would utilize six academic quarters in the most effective manner to produce a graduate who could function effectively within the existing Department of Defense acquisition system and who could simultaneously assess and improve the system. The method followed was to develop a project manager model, then test the elements of existing applicable academic courses an selected military acquisition curricula against the model attributes in a course evaluation matrix. Elements shown to be valuable were integrated into a project oriented curriculum consisting of a central core of project management courses and a series of basic academic discipline courses. The project management core interacts with a series of inputs simulating the life cycle of a typical project. Academic discipline courses are sequenced to be of immediate application in producing required output documentation. An Appendix provides a highly detailed description of the recommended curriculum
