A Study of the Monetary Value of the Master's Degree in Management Issued by the Naval Postgraduate School.
Andrilla, Joseph John; McGee, Bernard James
A survey of attitudes and opinions held by various industrial companies was conducted to determine: 1) employment opportunities, and 2) possible starting salaries for retired officers holding master's degrees in management from the Naval Postgraduate School. A questionnaire was mailed to selected members of the business community and local government agencies throughout the country. Results showed that over 61 percent had not heard of the Naval Postgraduate School program. There was preference for recently graduated civilians over retired officers, although 84 percent employed retired officers. Forty-two percent showed a pay range from $15,000 to $20,000. The majority indicated that a graduate degree would enhance starting salaries from $1,000 to $5,000 annually. Approximately 60 percent would welcome the receipt of resumes from retired officers. The report gives a summary of the data and recommends the direction of future research. (Author)
