Where I disagree with the article's author is the apparent universality with which the abandonment of certification is treated. In our practice with clients, we are finding that a master's degree is becoming the expected "ticket to entry" for senior management positions in many industries, both for-profit and nonprofit. Anyone under 45 without an advanced degree wishing to rise to the executive level should be looking to obtain one.

Goes back quite a ways. I was quickly hired into a teaching position many years ago. Apparently it was "obvious" in my interview that I had a PhD. Well, I don't. The school management eventually asked to see my PhD. I was even more quickly un-hired.
