(PDF 13,571.5 kb)
The evolution of the Army Baylor University graduate program in health administration, competency models, competency development, assessments, outcomes, federal leader development, predictive models, and their application since 1951 are examined. Based on 40 competencies (8 domains), a core executive skills curriculum to train prospective federal healthcare commanders was established in the early 1990s. Students enter the Army Baylor University program with an average of 11 years to their executive toolkits. The students go on to become federal executives and healthcare leaders. Descriptive and correlation statistics on the 2,263students were calculated. In the multivariate regression model to predict Final Course Average, the most salient variables were: performance on the Orals_composite, the Diagnostic Pre-Academic assessment, the GRE/GMAT, Undergraduate Grade Point Average, Total Years of Federal Service, and the Pre-Academic competency ratings for "Leadership" and "Ethical Decision Making." Recommendations for applications of the findings to competency-based approaches to graduate management education are offered.
