Abstract:

The U.S. Army Command and General Staff Officers Course CGSOC conducts several preparatory courses prior to the academic year. This thesis evaluates the effectiveness of the CGSOC curriculum in preparing the students for conduct of the academic year. This study reviewed professional articles from several industries as well as CGSOC history in order to gain appreciation for the concepts dealing with preparatory courses. This study also evaluated student and faculty responses to a survey regarding the preparatory curriculums effectiveness in preparing students for the academic year, and the relative cost of conducting the preparatory curriculum. The analysis of the data showed that the preparatory curriculum did not meet the college standard based on the responses of the students and faculty.
