The Graduate Acquisition Logistics Management Program

Format: Campus

Program Description:

AFIT is primarily a graduate school for selected U.S. and foreign military officers, and for equivalent-rank Department of Defense (DOD) civilian personnel. For all AFIT programs, admission and selection of students are handled through appropriate USAF directives. There is no charge for tuition, since our students are granted a "scholarship" to attend AFIT through their respective services.

The purpose of the Graduate Acquisition Logistics Management Program is to educate students on concepts and techniques for managing Air Force and DoD acquisition logistics. In particular, the courses in this program emphasize the importance of identifying and evaluating critical alternatives in the early phases of the design process. Special emphasis is placed on understanding the acquisition process, the key elements of integrated logistics support, life cycle cost techniques, the application of supportability analysis, the impact of reliability and maintainability on the system throughout its life cycle, and integrated logistics support planning.
