Abstract : This study addressed problems faced by the Marine Corps in managing critical secondary (skill designator) military occupational specialties (MOSs) assigned to unrestricted officers. After examining all skill designator MOSs for criticality, the study focused on three major programs: the Special Education Program/Advanced Degree Program, the International Affairs Officer Program, and the Acquisition Workforce Program. These programs require participation by a large number of officers and involve extensive education and training for those officers. Strengths and wealluesses of the current programs were assessed through interviews, data and a survey. Recommendations were made to improve the management of the programs in order to meet Marine Corps more efficiently and effectively.
