Impact of International Military Education (IMET) on Graduate Education
MetadataShow full item record
This report is a compilation of the significant findings of the most exhaustive study of International Military Education (IMET) conducted to date. Of particular note is that the report examines IMET and its benefits - over the long term - as viewed by various IMET actors. For a number of reasons, the benefits of IMET are not realized immediately upon the completion of any course but rather are realized over time. Thus an assessment conducted immediately upon completion of an IMET program is not a sufficient measure of its impact. The report is also unique in that it blends and integrates both quantitative and qualitative perceived benefits of IMET. The report documents the assessment of the IMET program as seen through a 360 degree lens: from the perspective of IMET graduates, their subordinates, their leaders, in country Security Assistance Officers (SAOs) responsible for the in-country decision making related to IMET, Foreign Service Nationals (FSNs) charged with routine administrative management and implentation of IMET in-country, and IMET policy makers (Congress, DoS, DSCA, OSD).
