Abstract : This study analyzes the current financial management needs of the Navy in terms of the skills required for officers to perform effectively in a wide range of financial management subspecialty billets, and in terms of the development of these skills through Master's degree level education at the Naval Postgraduate School. The study identifies and defines the most required financial management skill and observes significant skill patterns and relationships between these skills and a set of billet 'identifier' categories. The identifier categories used are the billets' rank and designator requirements, and the billets' P or Q code. In addition, this study determines that the subspecialty's Educational Skill Requirements and the Naval Postgraduate School financial management curriculum provide adequate coverage of all of the Navy's P and Q coded financial management billets' most required financial management skills.
