Message from the Director General of Military Training and Doctrine

The Nepali Army (NA) is a world class historically tested defense force with its institutional credibility and professional legitimacy. NA has been consistently maintaining its quality accreditation, ranging from its vital roles in the mid–eighteenth century unification campaign to the modern time world peace. The NA personnel with their legendary bravery and unconditional patriotism in promoting national interests, maintaining territorial integrity and respecting people’s sovereignty in all complex situations, home and abroad.

Under the Directorate General of Military Training and Doctrine (DGMT&D), Nepali Military Academy (NMA) Offers Cadets and trainee officers for various trainings, ranging from many of the quality basics to advanced martial strategies and tactics in order to transform them into finest junior leaders. During their training period at NMA, Officer Cadets graduate with Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities from Tribhuvan University (TU) while commissioning with the rank of Lieutenant of the Nepali Army. For more than four decades NMA has been serving the nation by commissioning young junior leaders into the Nepali Army to lead soldiers in time of peace and war effectively.

At NMA, competent and brilliant military personnel and qualified university faculty members prepare officer cadets to become good leaders, decision makers and proficient managers of the Defense Force. Determined to leadership building with quality assurance, the Academy trains young officers in challenging military and conducive academic environment, embracing the highest order of moral values with respect to military discipline and the chain of command.

NMA with its motto Knowledge, Service and Leadership envisions commissioning professionally competent and academically sound officers. Militarily trained officers from this institution are expected to serve the nation with the true spirit of sportsmanship and exalt the image of the Nepali Army worldwide for its significant roles in building Nepal as a strong nation–state while rendering services to the world citizens at war and peace.

Finally, I would like to thank the faculty and staffs whom with their high vision, sincere dedication, and disciplinary expertise have been contributing to the institution for the greater cause of humanity. I would also like to extend my best wishes to the officer cadets on training and those who aspire to serve the Nepali Army as officers in the future.
