Abstract : The thesis is concerned with what benefits the Air Force receives from sending logistics officers to civilian graduate institutions (CID). Additionally, how do CID graduates fare against graduates of the Graduate Logistics Management Program (GL). Three samples gathered were: CID graduates, the Non-degree (officers not possessing an advanced degree) group and GL graduates. Each subject was rated with a performance evaluation instrument completed by his supervisor. These data were tested on the basis of CID and Non-degree groups and CID and GL groups comparisons. The Non-degree group surpassed the CID group in managerial performance. The GL group far surpassed the CID group in managerial performance. (Author)
