... Self serving study if you ask me. Most pilots that I know in the USA with a 4 year aviation degree (not an engineering degree but a degree titled professional aviation or something similar) felt that their degree is not worth much and they would have studied something different in hind sight.
Yes, but the evidence is all there in the paper for anybody else to second guess the analysis.

One imagines that the paper might not have got published if the results showed that the aviation degrees added no significant value - but that doesn't mean that the paper that was published is incorrect.
