Abstract : The military services have been aware of the importance of advanced, formal education since the Korean War (1950-1953). During the past three decades, however, with the philosophy of the fortification of self - defense power; the modernization of the military equipment, and the development of defense - industry, there has been a great increase in the need for officers with education at the baccalaureate level and graduate level to prepare them for a extreme variety of roles beyond the traditional professional officer's combat mold. In this regard, this thesis is concerned with whether or not the needs for graduate education were inflated; whether officers so educated were used adequately in positions identified as requiring graduate education; and how we measure the value of graduate education in military officers.
