Fast growing changes in the political, economic and social spheres are occurring across several regions of the world, and Mozambique is no exception. These changes pose new challenges to higher education and, in particular, to higher military education, which should contribute to this development, namely, in the Military Academy curriculum and the development of command and leadership skills of its graduates. This paper presents a study developed in the context of the PhD in Educational Sciences, in the area of Curricular Studies and Pedagogical Supervision. This study aims at identifying the perceptions of military leaders of and graduates by the Military Academy Marechal Samora Machel on how the skills of command and leadership of troops are developed, and the articulation they establish between initial training and the exercise of those in the field of professional action. It is an exploratory study that starts from the phenomenological-interpretative paradigm and privileges a qualitative approach, resorting to documentary research, semi-structured interviews with military leaders selected for convenience, and two focus groups with graduates of that Academy. All of the presented results, point to new facts and dimensions to be introduced in the curriculum.
