The Master of Acquisition Management is an accredited graduate degree sought after
by contracting officers, contract specialists, financial managers and program managers within government.
It’s for those who seek promotion beyond GS-13, who wish to be selected to manage
larger contracting programs and who want maximum career advantage in the work place.

Program Objectives
The Master of Acquisition Management program provides you with a sophisticated and deep knowledge of acquisition, contracting and procurement processes and how these interrelate with standard business management processes of finance, law, operations, marketing and technical management. Emphasis is on preparing students to apply what they’ve learned
in the professional environment.

Requirements | Curriculum Path/Courses | Advanced Standing | Register

A newly accepted student at AGU must enroll in their first class within 90 days of acceptance. A student is subject to dismissal from the University for Unsatisfactory Academic Progress if they do not meet this deadline.

You must earn 36 credits to graduate. Each course is 3 credits. Twelve courses are required. To graduate you are required either to pass a comprehensive final examination or satisfactorily complete a project approved by the University and your instructor.

Curriculum Path
Each AGU course is organized in a sequential and logical order to make your learning experience optimal. When you begin, you will get a comprehensive study guide, with clear, simple instructions on how to proceed through each of your 12 courses.

We suggest you start by taking Course 602, “Essentials of Management,” followed by Course 601, “Federal Government Contracting.” However, the actual path you will take will depend on the advanced standing you received for courses previously completed elsewhere.

For individuals who are new to the acquisition field, it is suggested that you register for the non-credit Course 600 "Government Contracting Business Arrangements" before registering for any other AGU Acquisition courses.
