Together, BFM 2990V and BFM 3000 comprise a highly engaging blended learning course of instruction designed to foster critical thinking via instructor facilitated discussions, small groups sessions, and shared experiences. Students will be placed in a mock program office environment where they will use current acquisition programs to research, analyze and evaluate program financial data in order to develop briefings for senior leadership to make programmatic decisions.

This dynamic course will require hands on application and strategic analysis during small group collaboration sessions while making ethical cost effective, performance, quantity and schedule trade-offs, and managing risk to achieve programmatic milestones.
