Efficiency experts, business executives and even Inc. Magazine have touted the U.S. Marine Corps as one of the best examples of organizational leadership in the country. The heritage and ideals of the Marine Corps are passed on to the Cadets at the Marine Military Academy by a staff of former Marines who live their lives by these principles. Honor, courage and commitment are but three core values the staff and faculty preach to the young Cadets at MMA.
