What is the essence of a graduate-level system administration education? What skills and abilities of the candidate should educators focus on when developing a new program? This paper investigates the learning outcomes from three MSc graduate programs in network and system administration. We use a tournament-based game as a survey to establish a ranking of all the outcomes from the programs. Our results show a clear emphasis on security and the ability to create working solutions based on abstract descriptions.
