This is a survey based on another question asked by an NCO about why NCOs aren't afforded time in their career path to get a masters degree. I think that most officers do it on their own time and not on the Army's, but I could be way off. When and where did you get your masters degree if you have one. Just the active duty officers (counts if you were active and got one but are now retired). Certainly not scientific, but I'm curious now. I'll add another one to balance for the NCOs. I forgot to add an option to the survey if you don't have one. If you never got a masters while on active duty, just add it in the comments without taking the survey.

Due to my excessive prior service I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to attend a fully funded program so I pursued an MBA through the Post education center and went to class every week for two years while serving as a Company XO. It can be done but a sacrifice must be made.

Working on it right now- about a third done. Air University- Air Command and Staff. Master of Military Operational Art and Science degree- but oddly enough I am not eligible for the Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) Phase I or Intermediate Developmental Education (IDE) because I am a Guardsman. How does that effect me? Well I do many joint ops exercises from planning to execution- and now moving into DOMOPS with our Army counterparts.

I went to night classes after work. My supervisor allowed me to use some of my work time to study and/or complete projects as long as I kept up with my primary duties. To pay for it, I used TA coupled with a small loan to cover the rest.

Same here. That was for my first Masters degree before I had the chance to go to another military college.
