Since 1952, our Defense Comptrollership Program has trained financial managers to handle multibillion-dollar resources for the Department of Defense. Its more than 1900 military and civilian graduates are found at the highest levels of financial management in DOD, as well as in business, academia, and all levels of government. In order to increase the policy aspects of DOD financial management, the program was changed in 2002 from a 14-month 51-credit MBA program to a 14-month 60-credit MBA/Master of Arts in Public Administration Program. The first class to be awarded both an MBA and a Master of Arts in Public Administration - now an Executive Masters of Public Administration - graduated on August 8, 2003.
