Course Update

​ACQ 380 (International Acquisition Management) is DAU's Level III Int'l Acquisition Career Path (IACP) course.  DoD acquisition workforce members receive a DAU Certification of Successful Completion of IACP Level III Training upon graduation from ACQ 380.  ACQ 380 graduates to date have enjoyed this participative, practical exercise/case study-based course and rated it very highly. 

Unfortunately, due to the impact of COVID-19 on all DAU resident courses, the August 17-21, 2020 offering will be cancelled.

Please visit to learn more about DAU's overall COVID-19 plans for resident courses or e-mail the DSMC-Int'l faculty at regarding future ACQ 380 offerings.
