I'm going to sound a bit of a heretic here, but I don't understand why analysts are expected to have advanced master's degrees and PhDs.

Bottomline is that it's a field that requires specialised knowledge, how you build up that knowledge is largely irrelevent from the schooling you had, because I am not at all convinced the schools bring much added value in preparing students for real projects and work processes used in industry.

The next time I see an analyst job advert looking for a Masters degree in mechnical engineering or physics...I'm just gonna laugh internally like Vladimir Putin.
