Abstract: The paper presents the results of the scientific research undertaken by the authors regarding the way the graduate model is implemented in the training process for command officers. Introduction of the new curriculum in the military academies has resulted in the establishment of a core curriculum (including the disciplines of various specialties) and the curriculum at the academy's decision (linked to the domain Military Sciences and Intelligence) - two segments which have as main objective to reduce the gap between the permanent change of the officer's mission and job requirements, be it a theater of operations, an operative unit, an institution of education or an economic or administrative one and the competences formed by the education process. A significant stake of the new curriculum was the shaping of the “academy’s personality”, in a society which seeks to respect and value diversity, in the context of meeting national standards of quality education and provision of equal opportunities to all young people. In this context, a question emerged: how much is enough in the training of the command officers? How do we find the limit in their academic training in relation to branches and military specialties, how do we measure the abilities/competences of students or graduates and how do we introduce measures to regulate the process of forming the necessary skills and competences of command officers of all branches and military specialties. All these are just some of the questions whose answers the authors try to present in this paper. At the same time, we also present a software application of a dynamic design of the educational curriculum in relation to the labor market developments in the military, from the perspective of continuous training and implementation of the requirements formulated by our beneficiaries
