The DCP provides future comptrollers/resource managers with the conceptual perspective, practical and analytical tools, and management skills required in the increasingly complex, volatile, uncertain, and ambiguous resource management environment.
Since 1952, our Defense Comptrollership Program has trained financial managers to handle multibillion dollar resources for the Department of Defense. Its more than 1500 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.
The Department of the Army also sponsors the Army Comptroller Course (ACC), the Executive Comptroller Course (ECC), the Senior Resource Managers Course (SRMC), and the Financial Management 101 course (FM 101).
The purpose of the senior resource management course is to provide a better understanding of the changing environment in the Army and DoD as it relates to resource management.
The Army Comptroller Course (ACC) provides a basic multidisciplined financial and resource management (RM) overview to DoD military & civilian personnel newly assigned to the Comptroller Career field and to other personnel without a multi-disciplined background.
The Executive Comptroller Course (ECC) provides mid-level military and civilian resource/financial managers a broad perspective of the core competencies of Defense Financial Management.
The Army Financial Management 101 course is for personnel in the technical financial management function to increase their skills and knowledge in financial and resource management, in addition to refining their basic analytical capabilities.
The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management provides a clear competitive advantage in the ability to strategically align critical supply chain support services with vital tactical objectives to sustain the Department of Defense goals and objectives.
