Abstract

This study explores how leadership competencies can be cultivated in future military bachelors through academic subject areas. The objective of the research was to identify areas where leadership skills are demonstrated and where they need improvement. The methodology consisted of observing the behavior and performance of military bachelors and civilian students in specific academic subject areas, using assessment criteria to evaluate their leadership competencies. The results indicate that these students demonstrated strong leadership competencies in General Tactics and Fundamentals of Combat Support. However, there were also subject areas where leadership competencies need improvement, such as Border Guard Service, Border Control, and Moral and Psychological Support. These findings emphasize the importance of incorporating leadership development programs in professional academic subject areas to help future military bachelors acquire the necessary skills to be effective leaders.
