Eisenhower School for National Security and Resource Strategy: A preeminent course for members of the acquisition workforce, the Senior Acquisition Course (SAC) consists of the 10-month Eisenhower School curriculum, complemented by a choice of acquisition-related focus electives, graduate level lessons/seminars and individual/group research and writing. A limited number of SAC students may take the Defense Acquisition University Program Manager’s Course, PMT 401, in lieu of the focus elective and individual/group research and writing, as a general elective in partial fulfillment of Senior Acquisition Course and the National Security and Resource Strategy curriculum requirements. Those who complete the Senior Acquisition Course receive a Master of Science degree in National Security Resource Strategy from The Eisenhower School and a diploma signifying completion of the Senior Acquisition Course.
