    DAELP is an executive development program serving the commanders and senior civilian leaders of the 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 UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School and select other leading universities. Upon successful completion of the cohort, participants receive certificates from UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School and North Carolina State University.
