    DAELP is an executive development program serving the commanders and senior civilian leaders of our Nation’s Depot and Arsenal facilities, focused at the O-6 or civilian-equivalent career level (O-5 by exception). The U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC) identified the need for this program and established it at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2003. DAELP is administered by the Institute for Defense and Business (IDB) and delivered in partnership with the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. Upon successful completion of the cohort, participants will receive a certificate from the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School.
