Abstract
This thesis provides a comparative analysis of the financial management curriculum at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and other graduate public financial management curricula offered in graduate college and university programs throughout the United States. MBA curriculum data were solicited from business schools, MPA curriculum data were obtained from policy schools and DoD components were polled for service-sponsored graduate education data. Curricular data are compared and evaluated. The thesis concludes that the financial management curriculum at NPS is a special program that includes the best of both MBA and MPA curricula. The NPS curriculum coverage is uniquely adapted to provide public sector graduate financial management education. No other program offered in the U.S. is better designed to meet the financial management education needs of the Navy and Department of Defense. It meets the requirements of the sponsor, and is a course of study that the Navy can depend on to produce financial managers to handle present and future fiscal challenges.
