  1. All,

    I saw a link on the defence intranet today highlighting centrally funded MBAs and MSc in defence and project management. This sounds like something I could be interested in, particularly as I've recently graduated and am missing studying (strangely enough). The course is aimmed at middle ranking officers ideally (which I am not) but do work in a project management environment so am hoping that I would be considered.

    Does anybody on here have any experience on any of these courses and be able to detail course structure, content, etc?

    Thanks a lot for your help.
