Management in Defence

Study program Management in Defence arises from the needs of the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Serbia in the field of education of officers, units and services of the Armed Forces of Serbia. The goal of these studies is the adoption of academic knowledge and skills and achievement of competencies necessary for performance of initial officer’s duties in the branch – service of a platoon level commander in accordance with the missions and tasks of the Armed Forces of Serbia, as well as performing managerial duties in the defence system.

Undergraduate studies in Management in Defence are performed during four academic years (eight semesters). Total number of ECTS that a cadet must achieve to complete this level of study is 240.

The plan of undergraduate studies includes a series of compulsory and elective subjects. Compulsory subjects include those areas that are essential for understanding the basic theoretical assumptions and knowledge systems which the modern profile of professional officers is based upon, such as the subjects from the Defence Sciences, Security Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities, Natural Sciences and Mathematics and Technical and Technological Sciences. In addition, the structure of undergraduate studies includes those areas that are necessary to master the basic theoretical knowledge in management in the defence system, such as the subjects from the areas of Management, Economic and Organizational Sciences.
Except compulsory subjects, cadet also chooses a number of elective subjects in the study program, to the extent that is necessary to provide the required number of ECTS credits.

The first two years of training are identical for all cadets, and then they opt for one of the seven elective areas –   modules, namely:
  • Infantry,
  • Armour,
  • Artillery,
  • Engineers,
  • River units,
  • Artillery-rocket units for air defence and  
  • Air surveillance and reporting.
The subjects of the elective areas – modules are defined based on job profiles and job requirements – duties of officers in certain branches and services of the Armed Forces of Serbia. A cadet gains a degree of Manager if in due time fulfills all obligations prescribed by the study program, thereby achieving 240 ECTS.                       
In addition to a Diploma, a cadet is also issued with a Diploma Supplement, which means the cadet’s competences for a professional officer in a particular branch and service of the Armed Forces of Serbia, as well as a manager in the defence system.
