Abstract : The Venezuelan Navy, depends on its personnel, equipment, and facilities to successfully accomplish the Navy's mission. Therefore Naval operations rely on the ability of the officers to plan, organize, lead, and control the organization. Naval officers, whether senior or junior, hold positions as managers. For this reason a study was made of the educational background of officer candidates to determine the amount of management education they have received at the Naval Academy. From this study it was learned that although naval officers are generally well educated and trained; they are weak in the management area. In this thesis an attempt is made to show the basic elements necessary to improve such managerial education. Conclusions were drawn and recommendations were made to help the managerial development of Venezuela's Naval officers. (Theses)
