Abstract
This thesis provides an analysis of the current Unrestricted Line Officer career structures for the Surface, Subsurface and Aviation Warfare communities. Specifically, the various community career structures are studies in an attempt to identify where progressive development of the Financial Management subspecialty could be accommodated. This information is used to propose career paths, which are designed to ensure that the officer fulfills all necessary requirements for achieving command. The objective of the proposed alternative career path process, is to produce officers qualified to assume both command in their respective community, and qualified to assume the most demanding financial management billets in the Navy. In addition, the impact of having the Financial Management subspecialty on the future promotion potential of the Unrestricted Line Officers is analyzed. This portion of the thesis utilizes regression analysis on ten years of promotion data, for various categories of officers. The results are used to compare the promotion potential between the various categories of officers to determine if the Financial Management subspecialty has an adverse or favorable impact on the officer's future promotions.
