I was just wondering, how many of you professional pilots have masters degrees? If you have one, what is it in, and how much use have you gotten from it?
Not necessarily. The difference-breaker may be a four-year degree v. no degree. A Master's won't help much; in fact, I've heard that a Master's is a turn-off to some recruiters because they don't like pilots with too much education, and all that too much education might imply.swc12nap1 said:[A]ssuming that you are the recruiter for the airline, and you are interviewing tens of applicants who have approximately equal flight hours, would it not make sense that a person who has just the same flight hours like the rest and has a Master's degree might stand out in the crowd?
