A survey of attitudes and opinions he'id 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% had not heard of the Naval Postgraduate School program. There was a preference for recently graduated civiliars over retiree officers, although 84% employed retired officers. Fortytwo per cent showed expected pay ranges from $12,000 to $15,000; twentyfive per cent showed 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% would welcome the receipt of resumes from retired officers. The report gives a summary of the data and recommends the direction of future research.
