For our research paper we would like to look what makes military officers so appealing to corporate America. We did some quick research on the library database and found a few abstracts on articles written about military leaders switching over to corporate America. This topic interests us because we want to be military officers and will still be young enough to have a second career when we get out. We hope to learn about how the military experience affects life in corporate America. The business world is full of former military officers and this topic presents some very interesting leadership and management topics such as motivating peers, building cohesive teams, maturity and task driven leadership/ management.
